NASA Sleep Promoting Light Bulb hopes to send you to snoozeland, ASAP!

nasa-sleep-bulbAre all light bulbs the same? Sure, there are those which lay claim to being energy friendly, while others continue without a care in the world, especially when it concerns your monthly electricity bill. Having said that, going to sleep and turning off all the lights do have some sort of connection with one another, unless you are one of those rare human specimens who are able to nod off regardless of how noisy or bright it is. Trust NASA to come up with something handy that will be able to send astronauts to sleep while they are in space, with the $59.95 NASA Sleep Promoting Light Bulb.

Sure, this is going to cost many times more than an ordinary light bulb, but think of all the money that has poured in to help NASA achieve such technology. This particular light bulb apparently encourages the production of melatonin, which is the very same hormone that will help promote sleep. It will be different from other typical light bulbs as those emit high levels of short wavelength “blue” light that will suppress melatonin, while NASA offering has a patented filter which reduces blue light by 50% in order to facilitate a better night’s sleep. It is perfectly suited for a nightstand lamp for half an hour prior to you nodding off, so that your body’s natural circadian rhythm will be maintained in order for you to hit dreamland faster than ever before. As for brightness, fret not, this 12-watt LED will be able to produce a same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent for optimal illumination.
