Sleep is a crucial function of the human body but not nearly enough people get the proper amount. “At least 40 million Americans each year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders each year, and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleeping problems,” according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. What if better sleep simply required a new lamp?
Using therapeutic light, personalized sound and voice commands, Luzi helps users “fall asleep faster and wake up more refreshed,” according to their website. With a built-in alarm clock, this lamp allows users to listen to white noise or meditative sounds and have soothing light “made to emulate natural light to keep your circadian rhythm in order.” The settings are customizable to meet users’ preferences and ensure the best night’s sleep by creating a consistent sleep pattern.
Users pick between an analog and digital clock face and can change the voice on the unit which responds to voice commands to turn lights, sounds, and even the alarm on or off. Its Bluetooth speakers also allow users to play their own audio through the lamp. With four USB adapters and a wireless charging base, it helps de-clutter nightstands.
Luzi can also be paired with FitBit, Switchmate (an upcoming light control app), Lockitron (an upcoming system to lock and monitor doors in one’s house and more.
The company, based in Palo Alto, Calif., has a goal of raising $50,000.
Luzi Smart Lamp can be ordered for $269 and up on Indiegogo.
