A Time news report examines the new light bulbs available designed to help babies and their parents sleep.
Sleepy Baby is just one of many light bulbs available that are marketed toward helping babies (and their parents) sleep better at night. Thanks to advances in digitizing light, companies like Lighting Science Corporation are able to create light bulbs that do not emit the blue wavelengths of the light spectrum which cause our brains to be more alert.
For Lighting Science founder Fred Maxik, implementing bulbs like the Sleepy Baby in our homes to improve sleep quality is just the beginning of understanding the intersection of light and biology.
“At the end of the day, we’re trying to invent a new future for ourselves,” said Maxik. “And we can utilize light in a way we’ve never expected.”
