Now you can create your own sunset for a better night’s sleep

An urban lifestyle brings so much artificial light with it. We have lights in our faces all the time – from house lights, street lamps, computer screens, smart phones, and television sets. Such high exposures to artificial lighting wreck havoc with our internal Circadian rhythm and creates unbalanced photosensitivity in us which affects our quality of sleep.

But fear not cos the Drift Light bulb is here to enhance our sleeping moments which are affected by artificial light sources. While it turns on and off just like any other LED bulb, it’s here where the similarity ends. With a few flicks of the light switch, the warm spectrum bulb goes into a Midnight Mode, gradually dimming down to being turned off exactly 37 minutes later.

The simulated slow sunset helps sleepers ease into sleep by mimicking the gradual disappearance of the sun. With three flicks the Drift Light dims down to a Moonlight setting, casting a low light level which is excellent for ambience, a night light, or after-hours security lighting. In all three states – Daytime, Midnight, Moonlight – the LED bulb casts a warm temperature light, unlike the blue spectrum light produced by typical LEDs that will affect snooze-inducing melatonin levels negatively.
