Saffron's Silk Light promises to help you sleep better

Pulkit Chandna | June 25, 2015
Electric lights have had a profound impact on human civilization, but their impact on the human body is a different story altogether. A growing body of scientific evidence suggests artificial light tends to disrupt the circadian clock that governs the body's daily rhythms. Fortunately, bulb makers are now trying to address this issue--and we aren't just referring to big guns like Philips and GE here.

Silk is a ZigBee-speaking bulb that interacts with your smartphone via a ZigBee-to-WiFi bridge. It's a 60-watt incandescent equivalent that consumes 12 watts of power and puts out 800 Lumens. You can adjust the color temperature from 2700K to 6000K. The company has a three-bulb-and-one-bridge starter pack available for pre-order on Kickstarter for $99. The firm has set a $100 thousand goal, with a deadline of August 7.
