On October 19, at Breakout Lab’s Unboxing event, LogicInk, a pioneer in programmable materials, announced its first product to market: LogicInk UV, a wearable that resembles a temporary tattoo and monitors your UV exposure, signaling when it is time to take action to prevent skin damage.
The company’s first product, LogicInk UV, targets people concerned about radiation from the sun that can cause (1) severe diseases such as skin cancer and (2) the premature aging of the skin (photoaging). LogicInk UV is not powered by electronics. Instead its user interface is programmed with chemistry, alerting users when they have reached a safe daily UV limit determined by medical research on minimal erythemal dose (MED). MED identifies the least amount of UV exposure needed for each skin tone to get a noticeable sunburn.
LogicInk has raised $1M in a pre-seed round from Mission Bay Capital; Peter Thiel’s Breakout Labs, Berkeley Catalyst Fund; Antoine Blondeau, the CEO of Sentient.ai; and others. LogicInk is currently raising a seed round.
Logicink is asking anyone interested in the upcoming beta program to sign up now at http://logic.ink to stay informed about when and how to try LogicInk UV.
