Fresh on the heels of a possible skin implant that would allow us to get bronzed without actually going in the sun, scientists from King's College London are working on a pill that would replace sunscreen, and they say it could be available within five years.

Researchers hope to replicate this with a pill that would protect skin and eyes from UV rays and eliminate the need to slather yourself with a shot glass-sized portion of goo.
