Finally — a Band-Aid that Matches Your Skin Tone

July 18, 2012

File this one under "It's about time:" As part of the 2012 iF Design Talents competition, four designers have created the Chameleon Bandage, which changes color to perfectly match your skin tone when you stick it on.

I don't know about you, but I've always wondered what genius decided that band-aids should be a tan tint that doesn't quite work with anyone's skin tone. After all, no one -- not even Barbie -- has skin that's the same hue as the bandages available right now.

That's why I stopped using beige band-aids years ago. When I need one, I slap on a multicolored Hello Kitty or Cynthia Rowley design. But while that's fine when I have a paper cut or razor knick on my leg, it's a different story when I burn my chin with my curling iron. There's no way I'm wearing a floral band-aid on my face.

Thanks to this new, color-adjusting bandage, you might actually be able to hide that injury until it heals. While it's still only in the concept stages, were hoping Band-Aid is paying close attention. What about you? Would you buy a Chameleon Bandage?
