HumanCharger uses light to give you an energy boost

Your brain was programmed to wake up when the bright light of morning streams through your window. HumanCharger takes advantage of this instinctive reaction, beaming light into your skull whenever you need an energy boost.

  • How do you beat the winter blues? You can exercise, eat complex carbs, take vitamin D supplements, and try light therapy.
  • What is your circadian rhythm? It is the natural cycle that dictates when you should sleep and when you should wake up. It repeats roughly every 24 hours.
  • Can light masks help you overcome jet lag? Yes, actually. By applying light at the right time, you can help to reset your body clock.

There are few conditions worse than being unable to sleep. It happens to many of us after a long-haul flight. For others, sleeplessness is never far away. Much of the time, we struggle to rest because our circadian rhythm has gone awry. One way to correct the sleep-wake cycle is to trick your brain using light. HumanCharger is a headset that utilizes this form of light therapy. Two earplugs shine bright light into your skull during the day, making your mind sharp when it needs to be. It’s a great way to beat insomnia and the winter blues.

What is light therapy?

This term is used for various forms of treatment where light is applied to the patient. In the case of insomnia or depression caused by a lack of sunlight, light therapy usually involves being exposed to bright artificial light.

When a lack of sleep is the problem, the timing of the exposure is important. You need to see light at the opposite end of the day to bedtime.

These earbuds have a hidden feature

HumanCharger is a device that makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of light therapy, wherever you are. At first glance, the headset looks like a regular pair of in-ear headphones. HumanCharger offers all the same features, too — you can take calls and listen to music via Qualcomm aptX HD audio.
