It could someday be a really important tool in the fight against skin cancer. Researchers at Northwestern University say they have a device that could warn you when you're getting sunburned.
The wearable device is feather light, waterproof, battery free, wafer-thin -- and is about the size of a Tic-Tac.
Users can affix the sensor to a fingernail, clothing, even sunglasses.
Users will see an hourglass graphic to count down the minutes before a possible sunburn.
Cosmetics company L’Oréal has jumped on board to make the product widely available.
