Sony 'Smart Skin' camera spots pimples before they surface

PC World - Sony has developed new technology for using the small cameras in phones and tablets to check the health of users' skin.

The company said Monday its new "Smart Skin Evaluation Program," or SSKEP, can analyze different wavelengths of light reflected from a subject's skin to determine texture, pigmentation and melanin levels. Blemishes below the surface of the skin can also be detected. (Photo, Sony)

Cool technology, Sony. Great work. Dermatologists might make use of this soon.
