UV-Monitoring Wristband

Intellego Technologies from Sweden will soon be releasing color-changing wristbands that warn users of over-exposure to UV radiation.  The disposable wristbands will cost less than a dollar and are easy to wear.   When nearing the limit of UV radiation exposure, the band will change color from yellow to a noticeable pink to signal that it is time to head into the shade.  Scientists hope that this new development will help users reduce the risk of getting skin cancer.
