UV Sensor

UV Sensor

DIY is designing and constructing a “wearable” UV sensor.  The goal of this sensor is to track your personal UV exposure amount as you go about your daily activities.  The sensor measures the UV index and relays it to the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth.

We envision a lot of uses for this technology including prevention of sunburn and also allowing a user to “calibrate” their vitamin D levels based in real-world sun exposure amount.
