Samsung to unveil new Creative Lab (C-Lab) projects for kids and skincare at CES 2017


Samsung has announced that it will showcase three more Creative Lab (C-Lab) projects during CES 2017. Th company will introduce Tag+, an electronic device that adds extra functionality to kids’ toys; S-Skin, a home skincare and analysis solution; and Lumini, a portable device that checks the inner skin to identify and prevent skin problems.


Tag+ is a button-type device for kids and acts as a digital companion that connects to toys and a smartphone app through Bluetooth LE and introduces intuitive interactions. Depending on whether kids click, long-press, shake or bump the smart tag, the companion application responds accordingly, opening new doors for kids to have fun. Next up, S-Skin is a consumer skincare solution that comprises of a micro-needle patch and a portable device that analyses and cares for the skin. The micro-needle patch can deeply penetrate the skin to deliver effective ingredients and enhance absorption. The device can measure the hydration, redness, and melanin of the skin to provide customized skincare using LED light. The condition of the skin is saved in the accompanying app to track changes over time.

Finally, Lumini is a portable device that spots skin problems before they happen. After taking a picture of the face with Lumini, the device analyses the information with its own algorithm and sends the information to a smartphone app. The device identifies issues under the surface of the skin, like pimples, freckles, increased pores, wrinkles, redness, and sebum. Lumini also recommends cosmetic products based on the analysis and provides a remote consulting service with a dermatologist or a skincare specialist.

Founded in December 2012, C-Lab is a startup business program that encourages and supports the development of ideas from all areas of the business.
