Blacklight Mirror


Interactive mirror that assesses skin conditions

The Blacklight Mirror is an electronic device that highlights the extent of UV light damage to the user’s skin in real time. Using black light, a flash source that can display markings on the skin not visible to the human eye, the mirror unveils potentially harmful blemishes and marks that could otherwise go unattended. Installing the Blacklight Mirror in accessible public places, such as city centres and beaches, enables users to efficiently and regularly check any skin damage caused by UV light. Such accessibility could lead to greater awareness and the early diagnosis of common skin defects caused by UV radiation, including certain skin cancers.
