Remember watching The Jetsons and other futuristic shows when you were a kid? At that age I was far too impressed with the flying cars and robot dogs to know how helpful all of the time-saving technology could be. Now that I have a laundry list of chores to do every day, I often wish that I too could have my food made, house cleaned and all of my problems solved with the push of a button.
One problem that I would do anything to solve? My skin. No matter what I do, for the past twenty years I haven’t been able to figure out exactly what's going on with it. One day it's dry and flaky, and the next day, I have a giant zit in the middle of my face that could only be covered up with a paper bag. Well, all of my (and your!) problems may be easier to solve than we previously believed, with the help of Samsung’s new beauty technology.
The technology uses a combination of cameras, LEDs and nanotechnology to spot skin issues that may be so hidden you didn’t even know you had them. The brand is releasing two new products, the first being the Lumini, which has the ability to detect “pimples, freckles and increased pores, wrinkles, redness and sebum.” Once it detects these issues, it sends photos of your skin to your smartphone, where it also recommends products or dermatologists that you can talk to over the app to aid you with your problems.
The second is the S-Skin, which is described as a “a personalized IoT solution” that measures skin hydration, redness and melanin. It also delivers LED light to the surface of your skin, which is supposed to improve its health, as well as deliver anti-wrinkle and firming treatments.
We’re only three days into 2017, but with products like these, it feels like we are already lightyears away. Welcome to the future!
