Meet the LED Light Bulb Designed to Help You Sleep


A new company called Saffron has released a new LED light bulb called Silk that’s designed to improve your sleep patterns. 

Our well-being and mood throughout the day is largely influenced by the light we are exposed to. Following this principle, a start-up called Saffron has developed the prototype of a LED light that can sync our internal clock to the natural shifting color spectrum of the sun. The light is called Silk and the designers claim it can improve our performance and sleep patterns by giving us get the right kind of light for each time of the day. The programmable LED bulb emits light that is tailored to the user’s internal circadian rhythm, that is, our physical, mental and behavioral changes over the course of a 24-hour cycle in response to light and darkness. This is what evolution has programmed us to to do, but artificial lights, including digital screens, disrupt that balance. More from GizMag.
