Uncomfortable clothing

Uncomfortable clothing

Reebok have taken their EasyTone shoe concept to clothes. They have released tops and trousers that create resistance with every move, giving them the same toning capabilities.

Skin map

Researchers from the University of Michigan Health System have developed an app that allows users to screen themselves for skin cancer by using their mobile phones. The app, UMSkinCheck provides a step-by-step guide asking users to take a series of 23 pictures from different parts of their body. The photos provide a baseline for future comparisons that allows users to monitor changes to a skin lesion over time.
 

The app also includes a risk calculator for users to input their personal data and calculate if they’re at risk of developing skin cancer.
