As the summer season reaches its peak, the sun is out and as strong as ever. It’s important for Bay Area product design to keep you protected and safe especially when during the summer heat and strong sun rays. Having the right products to help you stay safe during extreme weather conditions is a smart way to stay prepared and be ready for any upcoming drastic weather – no matter the season. Here is a list of some of Mako Designs’ favorite products to help you stay safe and protected while under the sun!

Check out these products that can help keep you cool under the sun!

The Ultimate Stroller out Bay Area Product Design Firm Loves

Summertime is the perfect opportunity for Bay Area product design to help get you out and enjoy the outdoors with your young ones. If you have any kids or babies, you probably understand that as a parent, keeping them protected and safe from harsh sun rays is extremely important, especially since younger children have more sensitive skin. Finding a stroller that can properly protect your child from sun rays is an important quality that more parents look for – which is why the ‘Smart Intelligent Stroller’ by DO&BE Design is the perfect stroller for going out with. Not only does the stroller come with sensors to help you ensure that your baby is comfortable inside through giving you data and stats on the inside temperature and humidity of the stroller, but it also lets you know what the air quality is like. The smart monitoring feature lets you keep an eye on the UV index, and the full canopy mode allows for a full canopy cover to shield your baby from when the index is too high and to block out dust and UV rays.

The Summer and Sun Proof Jacket

If you’re a fan of hoodies but hate how they are too hot to wear during the summer – the DuoTek hoodie is great for both the summer day and night that works great for Bay Area product design. The DuoTek jacket is made with specially engineered fabric that is both reflective and UV absorbent. The hoodie does a great job by shielding your face from the sun while the hood is up and absorbing UV rays, giving it a great reflective design that stands out. The hoodie is also waterproof, windproof, stretchable, lightweight, and comes with convenient pockets for your phone and wallet.

A Visor Built into Your Car to Save Your Eyes from the Sun

As a Bay Area product design firm, we understand the pain that a lot of drivers experience while driving in the summer, getting that bright sun glare and reflection in your eyes. While some may wear sunglasses, sometimes the accessory can actually serve as a distraction, can fall off your face, or just be a bother while driving. The innovators at Bosch have come up with a great solution to help drivers avoid dealing with the sun while driving. The Virtual Visor is a transparent plate that rests in front of you and allows you to easily drive while seeing the road ahead of you. The Visor works by its facial sensing RGB camera that sits on your dashboard and tracks your face while you drive. Once it senses that there is a glare or an excess of brightness caused by the sun on your face, it casts a shadow onto your eyes to cut the glare, whilst still remaining transparent so that you can continue driving. Bosch is still working on developing the feature – but once it comes out, it’s sure to be a big help for any upcoming summer road trips!

A Mask That Perfectly Suits Bay Area Product Design

Although spending time outdoors is a great and healthy way to spend the summer, it’s still important to remain aware and safe! New innovative masks, that are perfect for Bay Area product design, have been a big trend amongst designers as the world figures out the best ways to stay safe while out and about. One cool innovation amongst face masks is the Summer Wave masks by Studio Atelier I+N. The mast is specifically made for use during the bright summer days, where wearing both glasses and a mask simultaneously could seem suffocating to the face. The result is an easy-wearing mask that comes with a pair of built-in shades sitting right at the top of your nose bridge that works as pair of sunglasses to help shield your eyes from the sun without the need of another pair of sunglasses.
