Anti-jet lag sunglasses


If you've ever experienced the all-consuming exhaustion and insomnia that is jet lag, then rejoice as we've got some good news. The world’s first time control sunglasses are set to ban the condition for good.

Developed over 25 years by a team of scientists at Flinder University in Australia, the device emits a soft green glow (the best light for changing the body clock), which imitates sunlight patterns to help travellers adapt to different time zones. The light sends signals to the rest of the body to make it realise it's in a new part of the world.

Professor Leon Lack, the device’s chief inventor said: "Body clocks or circadian rhythms influence the timing of all our sleeping and waking patterns, alertness, performance levels and metabolism."

"Photoreceptors in our eyes detect sunlight, signal our brain to be awake and alert, and set our rhythms accordingly. These rhythms vary regularly over a 24-hour cycle. However, this process is often impaired by staying indoors, traveling to other times zones, working irregular hours, or a lack of sunlight during winter months."

"Using a light device allows you to transition your body clock to a new time zone in small steps. This eliminates the sudden change people experience after flying and reduces the symptoms of jet lag.”

The battery-powered device, also known as the Re-Timer, will retail in Britain for £162.
