With winter slowly closing in, grey skies are on the horizon – and we should all watch out for signs of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Now three guys from Denmark think they’ve got the solution for SADness – they’ve invented a pair of reverse sunglasses that promise to bring back sunny days no matter how cold and gloomy it is outside. Just slide the frames on and they’ll power up six LED lights that purport to transport you to a one-person island of sunshine and good times.
The trio started a Kickstarter campaign to make their LED outfitted wearable sunshine a reality. So if you’re feeling lethargic, hungry and irritable, perhaps popping these sleek shades on and pumping up the UV rays will keep your mood boosted all through the snowy season. The inventors of the “sun” glasses placed six LED lights behind a frosted reflector that bounces a lovely glow across your face but won’t blind you – so you can go about your normal activities. They promise you can read a book or work at your computer while sporting the mood-enlightening spectacles.
“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,” notes the Seqinetic Kickstarter page. “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.” The trio demonstrates how the glasses work in their Kickstarter video, which is worth a watch, and say that these glasses are a more productive way to beat the blues than the SAD light stations that are currently all the rage.
