As you may have read, microcurrent innovation is all the rage in health and beauty. If you’re wondering when the day will arrive that your skin regimen involves using an iPhone app, wonder no more that day is here. ZIIP ($495) uses electrical currents to stimulate a skin chemical called adenosine triphosphate, which biologists describe as the “energy currency of life.”

ZIIP is an FDA-cleared device that stimulates the skin using small energy vibrations that flow through positive- and negatively-charged discs. To use it, apply ZIIP’s Golden Gel and then select a desired treatment from your iPhone app to re-energize your skin. ZIIP was developed by Montecito, Calif.-based esthetician Melanie Simon, who specializes in “nano” treatments to repair skin cells.

While the device and replacement gel ($129) are pricey, the results are well worth it. Charlotte’s Book includes it in its list of “Gadgets We Like (And Don ’t Like).” Town & Country Beauty Director Jamie Rosen considers it a skincare must-have. Allure’s Lexi Novak gives the device a thorough, and funny, review and concludes that ZIIP made her face feel “delightfully soft and luminous.”

First Exoskeleton Suit Receives FDA Clearance

Marlborough, Mass.-based ReWalk Robotics has received clearance from Food and Drug Administration for the company’s ReStore soft exo-suit system designed for U.S. rehabilitation centers. ReStore is the only soft exo-suit with FDA clearance, and is intended for use in the treatment of stroke survivors with mobility challenges. The cost for ReStore will hover around the $100,000 mark, putting it out of reach for most patients but not rehab facilities. The technology should improve and lower costs. The global stroke management market is forecast to reach $37 billion by 2023, according to Allied Market Research.

Delivery Drones

In April, Alphabet’s Wing became the first drone delivery company to gain Federal Aviation Administration approval to make commercial U.S. deliveries. Just five years ago, 63% of Americans thought it would be a “change for the worse” if commercial drones were given permission to fly through most U.S. airspace. But then again, you can’t have consumers assess future technologies because they have little understanding of its inherent potential. That is underscored by Morgan Stanley’s prediction that autonomous aircraft could become a $1.5 trillion industry by 2040. Meanwhile, Amazon has unveiled the latest iteration of its Prime Air delivery drone. Video below in our innovation video gallery.
