Sleep mask that emits light from the inside to wake you up naturally
A startup Dreamligth introduced a new Sleep mask that has- reduces the effects of jet lag, recommend adjustments to your sleep habits based on your 23andMe profile, and, um, project infrared light to supposedly help with under eye circles. This Dreamlight mask has some concrete features that enable you to get a more restful night’s sleep.
The Sleep mask is heavily padded and contoured strip that wraps around your head and attaches with velcro. The belt design is meant to spread out any pressure applied to the face and block out as much light as possible. It also has an optical heart rate monitor, infrared sensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and four speakers embedded in the sides.
The belt is connected to an app, that allows you to track sleep patterns over time, set when to wake up, choose what ambient sounds to play while you’re falling asleep, and, according to the company, make sleep recommendations based upon your 23andMe genetic profile.
Perhaps most interesting is the fact that Dreamlight exhibits light inside the cover-up via LED sections before your sight to both help you drift off and wake you up obviously each day. Light is the only path to wake you up if you are using Dreamlight’s app; there is no ability to create an alarm.
The app is only available in Android beta — but you could still use the quick start menu on the front of the Dreamlight. This allows you to set the current time, language, and the time you wanted to wake up.
Once you are ready to go to sleep, just strap it on, activating a pulsing, warm-coloured light (meant to trigger melatonin production to make you sleepy) and ambient sounds. According to the report- the Dreamlight told it is supposed to match your breath with the pulse of the light, leading your body to relax and fall asleep faster.
Sleep masks are certainly helpful, but be aware that there’s the healthy reason to call into question some of Dreamlight’s claims.
