In Australia, we love the sun. Unfortunately, we also have one of the highest rates of Melanoma in the world and it’s the cause of over a 1500 deaths per year.

But imagine if your favourite swimmers could tell you the moment you’re getting too much exposure to UV rays? That’s Antonio Tricoli’s vision. He’s currently working towards wearable nano-technology to help lower our nation’s risk of melanoma.

It’s easy to lose track of sun protection when you’re enjoying the great outdoors. But with Antonio’s low-cost, wearable technology, we’re one step closer to a future free from skin cancer.
