Today we heard about a new wearable gadget, called Neuroon, which helps to fight jet lag with brain wave technology and light therapy. The Polish-US startup Inteliclinic, located in Warsaw, Poland and San Francisco, California, designed this high-end sleeping mask primarily for frequently stressed air-travellers and everybody who enjoys a soft and soothing sleep.
Neuroon combines the classic passive function of a traditional sleeping mask with cutting edge wearable technology. The four biometric sensors in the Neuroon measure data from your body and four LED lights inside the mask relax and sooth you. The battery should last around two to three days at normal usage and the device’s memory can store up to seven days of data.
The Neuroon can support your health with many features. You can hook up your iOS or Android smartphone and use one of the following functions:
- Jet Lag Blocker
- Light Boost
- Sleep Analytics
- Biorhythm Adjuster
- Personal Pause
- Sleep / Alarm / Sunset
Never had a jet lag? Okay, let me quickly explain it. A jet lag is a temporary neurological condition after flying long distances, which makes you feel very unpleasant and unproductive, sometimes for days. The medical explanation would be referring to that as desynchronosis and rarely a circadian dysrhythmia. It is a physiological condition which results from alterations to the body’s circadian rhythms resulting from rapid long-distance transmeridian (east–west or west–east) travel on high-speed aircraft (as per Wikipedia). To make it real short: You don’t want to have a jet lag.
“This could be a new way of adjusting much more quickly to time changes than other methods in use today.”
– Jamie Zeitzer, PhD, Harvard University
The Neuroon sleeping mask device is available for a pricing of $299. You can buy it from all around the world with reasonable shipping costs on the official Neuroon webpage. If you are a frequent flyer and suffer from a lot of jet lag, you should definitely consider to try Neuroon out. Also if you are a fan of highly efficient napping or technologically augmented sleeping, you need to get your hands on this device. Re-sync your biological clock!
