Taking the concept of a bedside lamp and melding it with an alarm clock, the bodyclock wake up light truly is a remarkable product. Visually it is an ultra-modern looking piece of kit, with a clear LED display and uncluttered curvaceous form, suitable for any minimalist/contemporary design scheme. Then of course there is the functionality of the product which aims to wake the user in a far less invasive, and not to mention, a more natural way than conventional alarm clocks which as their very name boasts can be too alarming an awakening for many.
Why use light rather than sound as a wake up signal?
Seasonal effective disorder SAD) is a phenomenon that is believed to effect anything from between 1 to 10 per cent of the population, so clearly any treatment or technology that aims to address this problem is a welcome revelation. The Bodyclock Wake up Light aims to do just that. By utilising a dimmable light that brightens slowly, gradually awakening the user and ensuring a better hormonal balance that will ensure a better and more refreshed start to the day.
In addition this product also has the added benefit of effectively working in reverse, so that at night as the user can experience a gradual ‘wind down’ as the light simulates the setting sun, rather than experiencing the frustration of trying desperately to fall asleep quickly when the mind is still active.
Still a bedside light!
We shouldn’t forget to mention of course (it being our bread and butter and all!) that the Bodyclock Wake Up Light also functions as a good old fashioned bedside light as well, with the aforementioned dimmable light being more than suitable for the job. Any concerns about the backlit LED display being an issue can also be put to rest as this can be turned off as required for those desiring complete darkness when asleep.
