Beauty tech has just got way more cutting-edge with the
new pocket-sized WayWearable device
A brand new Korean start-up named
WayWearable, has invented a revolutionary beauty tech gadget named Way that is
set to change the way you care for your skin. You might be thinking what is so
awesome about this new gadget since it is just ‘another one of those wearables
that’s flooding the tech market.’ Well, this is not just another wearable but
one of the first few dedicated beauty tech gadgets there are in the market.
Just about the size of a compact powder
case (for reference, that’s about ¾ the size of the Apple’s iPhone 6), it fits
easily into any purse or even pocket. Way is built with advanced sensors that
gathers information about your skin and the environment and informs you about
them via a Smartphone application. Simply place the gadget on your skin and let
its sensors handle the rest.
Way is able to measure the exactly level of
moisture below the surface of your skin, age-accelerating UV light and relative
humidity. By combining data from its sensors, Way will be able to give you a
comprehensive personal skincare advice, through the mobile application at every
hour of the day.
It even has a friendly reminder feature
whereby it will prompt you to apply moisturiser when the humidity level lowers
and even recommends specific skincare products to suit your skin type. To top
it all off, it can chart how well your skincare regimen is actually working
over for you over time. Derma-cool huh?

Well, it hasn’t exactly hit stores just yet and is expected to retail for
US$149. However they are crowd-funding their device on Indiegogo, check them
