New Yorkers understand that the key to success is making every day productive, and it starts with a good night sleep. From sound machines to pillows and mattresses, there are countless gadgets that can aid in being well-rested and ready to start the day.
C-Sleep Bulbs by GE
As people are getting ready for bedtime, lighting is one thing that sets the tone for a good night’s sleep. The C-Sleep bulbs from GE are ideal for the bedroom with their three time-sensitive settings for morning, day and night. The morning light is a bright blue-toned light that stops the production of melatonin. The day setting is similar to the light bulbs we are accustomed to, and the night setting is an amber color that helps your body produce melatonin and wind down at the end of the day. The bulbs are available in a 4-bulb starter pack at CbyGE.com and are also available for individual sale at all Lowe’s and Target stores. They’re controlled via Bluetooth using a free app available on both Android and Apple devices.
Cleaner air can be the solution for an uninterrupted night of sleep, and Foobot is the perfect gadget to monitor for indoor air pollution. There are countless factors that can add to air pollution, including cooking, dust and dander. The Foobot lights up blue when the indoor air is good and orange when the air is bad. Connecting to an iPhone, the gadget identifies CO2 levels, humidity and temperature.
For those nights when people want to lay in bed and watch a movie, they can hook their smartphone to ASUS’ ZenBeam1. This pocket-sized device projects a screen up to 120 inches from any smartphone, computer or media streamer. Boasting a vibrant image, the ZenBeam1 delivers movie theater quality projection. Whether people prefer to watch one of their favorite shows or a relaxing movie, a soothing night is just a projection away.
