Computer Tan Lets You Bake at Your Desk


Ever wanted to get a tan while punching numbers at your desk? Babyassface tipped me off to this website called Computer Tan. The concept is pretty strange: They claim that their technology converts the electrical impulses of your LCD monitor into ultraviolet rays that then create a tan in your skin. (A test makes sure that the amount of exposure is calibrated to match your skin tone.)

Computer Tan's officials say that using their tanning technology is safer than baking in the sun or using a tanning bed. They claim the ability to strip the harmful parts of UV exposure, therefore preventing damage to the skin. A base tan takes four to five sessions within a 10-day period to develop, and it lasts for one to two weeks. You know I always say there's no such thing as a safe tan — and perhaps the Computer Tan people feel the same way — but if you're willing to give it a go, the company offers a free five-minute trial.
