“The Best of What’s New awards honor the innovations that shape the future,” says Kevin Gray, Executive Editor, Popular Science. “From life-saving technology to incredible space engineering to gadgets that are just breathtakingly cool, this is the best of what’s new.”
The GenesisDynaSpectrum is the world’s first commercially-available luminaire focused on improving the user’s health and productivity. TheGenesisemits a spectrum of light that mimics daylight and twilight to regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythm 24/7. The lamp dynamically changes, with or without user interaction, between Lighting Science’s biological LED spectrums, GoodDay - to enhance natural energy and focus - and GoodNight - to promote a healthy and restorative sleep.
“Beware of the imitators who claim to achieve health & wellness, sleep, and productivity benefits using old fashioned ‘color temperature’ shifting methods,” says Fred Maxik, Chief Technology Officer and founder of Lighting Science. “OurGenesisplatform and its DynaSpectrum light engine is the first all-in-one HealthE lighting solution in the world. DynaSpectrum allows us to deliver a biologically-optimized spectrum of light for every time of the day – on demand.”
TheGenesisDynaSpectrumtechnology is so effective at regulating circadian rhythms that NASA is installing a customized version on the International Space Station this fall, where astronauts experience 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours. The Genesisalso makes for the ideal desk light or bedside table lamp. On-board sensors monitor local air quality to assist in improved breathing, allergy-relief, cognitive function and sleep. The unit comes with multiple control options, an easy, app-based color/spectrum setting, and can be switched to auto-mode to sync GoodDay and GoodNight spectrums to your local time anywhere in the world.
The November/December Best of 2016 issue of Popular Science is now available at newsstands everywhere.
