Lumi Mask—The Mask That Wakes You up with Light

Sometimes we consider waking up to be the worst part of the day. Regardless, that annoying buzzer on the alarm clock is enough to make anyone grumpy in the morning. So what about waking up in a more natural way? One designer named Taylor Franklin Hide thinks that light is the key to starting your morning right.

This Lumi Mask is designed to provide a gentle wake-up call by emitting an increasing amount of light over the course of the 30 minutes. Before sleep, dial in your wake-up time on the alarm controller. Put Lumi on, and fall asleep. In the morning, 30 minutes before your wake up time, its soft light gradually grows brighter, until the user’s mind thinks it is daylight and wakes up naturally. An audible alarm sounds at the end of the sunrise sequence, letting you know it’s time to start the day. This eliminates the need for annoying buzzers and other noises.

Lumi is molded from soft neoprene foam, forming an eye cavity to allow for normal blinking and circulation. An adjustable strap allows you to comfortably adjust the mask to fit your face. Lumi’s lightweight design comfortably conforms to your face and the interior is made from soft satin fabric. LED substrate is affixed to the inside of the mask, providing a soft light source. An alarm controller allows you to set your wake-up time and the light intensity.

有时我们会觉得,一天当中最糟糕的时刻莫过于清晨起床。不管怎样,那恼人的闹铃足以让你一天都心情低落。那么,是否有更为自然的方式将我们从睡梦中唤醒呢?设计师泰勒?富兰克林?海德认为,光才是迎接美好一天的关键。

光明眼罩的设计理念是通过模拟晨曦将人唤醒,醒前半小时开始发出柔和的光,并逐渐变强。入睡前,先在闹钟设定器上设定好你的起床时间,再戴上眼罩进入睡眠。清晨,在设定时间前半小时,眼罩便开始发出柔和的光,并逐渐变强,直至大脑认为已经天亮,并自然醒来。闹铃则在最后,提醒你新的一天已经来临。如此便帮我们省去了恼人的闹铃和其他噪声的烦扰。

光明眼罩由氯丁橡胶泡沫材料制成,并设计有眼腔,佩戴者可以随意眨眼并促进血液循环。眼罩后面的束带可自由伸缩,根据脸型调整长短。该眼罩十分轻巧,内部由柔软的缎纹织物构成,贴合脸部,佩戴很舒适。眼罩内置有LED灯,可以发出柔和的光线。此外,它的闹钟控制器可以设定时间并调整光线强度。
