It’s Getting Hot In Here … So Take Off All Your Clothes, Almost

By | October 4, 2008

I was reading the Telegraph when I came across this an article referring to a bikini. Not just any bikini but one which could help protect us all from the effects of the sun’s rays. In Britain we don’t get many days when we require sun cream, usually an umbrella is required. Lol

No, seriously this bikini has intelligent beads on it, which can detect the suns UV Index. The Solestrom Smartswim UV Intensity Bikini can indicate the strength of the sun’s rays by the colour of the beads on the side ties and between the cups of the bikini.

It’s not always easy to judge the intensity of the suns harmful rays, especially on an overcast day. Not any more, the beads change colour through a range of shades from white to dark purple.

In which case they advise to head for shade.

This is one of the best ideas I have seen in a long time and I’m hoping that it takes off for them and helps save many people from the dreadful effects of skin cancer.
