Sony SSKEP skin analyzing technology

Sony is extremely famous for their range of consumer electronics devices, and once in a while, they do seem to venture to unchartered waters. Which is a good thing, as it helps fire up the creative juices of the various engineering teams behind whatever new project there is, not to mention giving Sony the chance to stumble upon something that could very well be the next big thing. Well, one of Sony’s latest advancements would be the “SSKEP,” which has been described as a “Highly Accurate, High Speed Skin Analyzing Technology”, where this pioneering work that involves the application of image sensors might be the start of something new.
The Sony “SSKEP (Smart Skin Evaluation Program)” is said to be a highly accurate, high speed technology that will help analyze different kinds of elements of the skin, where among them will including texture, blemishes, pores, brightness and coloring. “SSKEP” has been said to be Sony’s very own skin analyzing technology where it is made up of back-illuminated CMOS image sensors which are capable of achieving high sensitivity and low noise, multiple wavelength light source controls, and skin-analyzing algorithms. This clever combination of advanced sensing technologies in addition to high-speed image processing technologies will pave the way for the quantitative and multilateral measuring and analysis of the numerous elements that a skin has.
Right now, most skin analyzing products out there in the beauty industry for professional and consumer use are large, unwieldy and of course, expensive, while consumer products deliver limited analyzing capabilities. Using Sony’s newly-developed “SSKEP” skin analyzing technology will change the game as manufacturers can then commercialize compact products which can easily analyze the different elements of the skin. Basically, an important aspect of skin analysis would be the ability to examine both the surface layer of the skin and the layers beneath the skin.
“SSKEP” is capable of optimally controlling not only the output of multiple wavelength light sources, but the image capturing process with the CMOS image sensor to boot, helping realize highly sensitive photography on and beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in diverse and highly-accurate skin analysis. Will we see a commercially available package for the masses soon? Perhaps.
