Glasses That Blast Your Eyes With A Daylight-Like Spectrum Make You Less Depressed During The Winter

November 13, 2012


Looking cool is just a bonus.

This is Seqinetic, a pair of €59 (~$75) glasses that have six LEDs and a reflector to shoot a comforting white "daylight" spectrum of light around your eyes (but not directly in them) to improve your mood in the long, dark winter months. Me? I just hibernate. Because I'm a bear. ROAR! "You are not a bear." I HAVE SHAT IN THE WOODS.

Getting out of bed on a dark winter morning can be tough. Lots of people need a strong cup of coffee or even an energy drink to get going.

We have an innovative alternative. SEQINETIC™ "sun" glasses are a calorie-free, substance-free way to beat the winter blues. They offer the bright, white daylight you're craving - in a portable design.

SEQINETIC™ "sun" glasses let you wear your light source while you go about your morning routine. And yes, you can read and use a computer while wearing them.

Using SEQINETIC™ "sun" glasses for up to 30 minutes a day, and you'll have much more energy during those long, dark winter months.

I have no clue if any of their claims are actually accurate, I just posted them hoping to score a free pair. Then I'm going to replace the LEDs with lasers and give them to my roommate to wear. God willing he'll go blind and I won't have to share the TV in the living room anymore.

Hit the jump for a video demo.

Thanks to The Pink Punisher, who keeps his spirits high in the winter the old fashioned way: staying in and drinking your way through it.

    At my workplace we have no windows (for security reasons). This means that (during the winter months) we get no light during the day except the half an hour commute in the mornings, and maybe a bit at lunch if we want. One of our top managers has compiled a report on "SAD" (Seasonal Affective Disorder), and we've been talking very seriously about getting some light boxes to stick around the place to stop the "depression" that hits us all after a month or so of it being autumn / winter. The light boxes are essentially boxes the size of a cereal packet and they are extremely bright - like sunlight. These look like a much better option. And however ridiculous they are - I think I may actually have to try them!

  • That's cool. Then you can betray the entire crew of Prometheus and get your head torn off.

    I doubt this will do jack for people who hate waking up in the morning, even in the middle of summer.

    Its called Seasonal Affective Disorder [SAD] and it affects quite a few people, see the link below.
