Sun Chaser

Our modern metropolitan lifestyle contributes to a growing population trend towards vitamin D deficiency. SunChaser is an "Internet of Things" application that gathers your sunlight exposure data from a wearable and translates that into a wall mounted lamp.


SunChaser encourages people to become more conscious of the benefits of sunlight and the healthy amount of sunlight they need. Several features of geography and modern lifestyle have converged to limit average exposure to sunlight and contribute to a growing population trend toward vitamin D deficiency. Those affected the most usually live in a busy metropolitan areas in northern latitudes. SunChaser is an “Internet of Things” application that responds to your sunlight exposure by gathering data from a wearable and translating that data into a wall hanging lamp installation.
