What Is The “Blue Sticker” Robert Downey Wore On His Wrist At The Golden Globes?

Fashion fans and celebrity watchers are known for watching stars at glam events like the Emmys, The Grammys, and the Golden Globes, taking note of what designers they are wearing, what jewelry they are flashing, trying to keep their fingers on the pulse of “the next big thing.”

The most eagle eyed observers at the recent Golden Globes, held in Los Angeles, may have noticed a tiny blue sticker on the wrist of at least one A -lister – globally renowned actor, Robert Downey Jr.  The sticker was captured in the official photos of the award ceremony. As Downey proudly clinched his Golden Globe for Oppenheimer – there it was – the telltale blue sticker on Ironman’s wrist as he raised his arms in victory.

People are asking – What is that little blue sticker, and why was Downey wearing it to one of the most important events of the year?

The answer is fascinating:  It’s not just a fashion statement; it’s an Italian pride.  So what IS it, and what does it do? This incredible little device, designed and produced by a Venetian company, Tao Technologies, is the result of Italian research on nanotechnologies, specifically quantum dots, creating a wearable laser designed to combat any type of pain 24/7.

CEO Fabio Fontana recalls, “I was returning from the Christmas holidays when a journalist friend called to tell me he had watched the event live and seen Downey Jr. wearing my product. I thought he was joking, but then I received dozens of reports, and, after rubbing my eyes, I realized it was all true. I then researched and found out that Ironman is passionate about nanotechnologies and has founded a Foundation to explore advanced technological solutions to save the world.”

There’s a reason the Hollywood star chose to apply the device near his wrists: “It’s a very important point, especially in acupuncture,” explains Fontana. It’s the PC6 point (pericardium 6), also known as the Master of the Heart. It has various scientifically recognized uses, such as preventing motion sickness in children, regulating heart rate in cycling and endurance sports, but its main use is indicated in moments of strong emotion, fitting for such a significant award ceremony in an actor’s career.”

How it Works:

“At the core of the technology are nanotechnologies and quantum dots, whose discoverers were recently awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. This device is so useful on a postural and neurological level that it can also be used for more severe disorders. The European Journal of Translational Myology and the prestigious medical database, Pubmed, have disclosed – Fontana says – a study conducted on behalf of the University of Palermo by a team led by Professor Giuseppe Messina. The study confirmed that the wearable laser is beneficial for those combating severe conditions such as multiple sclerosis. The research demonstrated that the device promotes an increase in vitamin D levels, ensures statistically significant improvements in baropodometric measures, and results in greater grip strength in both the right and left hands. These significant findings naturally make us proud – Fontana concludes – and demonstrate how the world of nanotechnologies can also be helpful in the medical field.”
