[Gadget de la semaine] No more jetlag with Re-timer

Last week we introduced you Remee, a mask whose system, based on red LEDs, let its users know they were dreaming. This week, color change, it is an object based on a system of green LEDs that we want to present to you: Re-timer.

The result of more than 25 years of research at Flinders University in Australia, these somewhat special glasses are the new remedy to fight against the effects of jet lag, the winter blues or insomnia. The diffusion of light in the field of vision of the user would reproduce the effects of the sun on the organism and make it possible to readjust its internal clock.

Its founders recommend an exposure of 50 minutes for three days to fight against jet lag, or 30 minutes each day against insomnia and winter blues.

The Re-timer glasses, weighing 75 grams, can be used in conjunction with prescription glasses and are rechargeable directly from a USB port. They have been available since November on the UK market for almost € 200 (162 pounds).
