“Feel like you’ve just stepped out of a salon.”
A message that will be forever etched on the mind of anyone who watched too much telly in the 90s. What Salon Selectives never clarified in its adverts was what the weather was like outside. If it’s 75% humidity out there, the chances are you’re going to ruin your new do by stepping out – which isn’t a great feeling.
The point of this trip down memory lane is to set us up for CliMate – a Kickstarter campaign from tech-monkeys Rooti that monitors your immediate environment. The wearable Bluetooth cloud syncs up with your smartphone every fifteen minutes, recording data about current UV index, temperature and – of course – humidity.
But CliMate isn’t just useful for obsessive parents and anyone who’s just been for a trim – all the information is collated in CliMate’s cloud database, so you can check exactly what it’s like wherever you’re going. Enter your skin type and it’ll even advise you on when to reapply suncream.
If only it could do your back as well.
