In our modern, connected world, it can be difficult to get a good night's sleep or focus on important work due to factors like blue light from screens and constant notifications. These factors are influenced by our circadian rhythms, which are 24-hour cycles that humans respond to based on natural light patterns. BIOS Lighting's SkyView 2 lamp aims to improve sleep and concentration levels by capitalizing on these principles, making it a beneficial addition to a dorm room for students struggling with early morning classes or lack of focus for assignments.
Designed by BIOS Lighting Chief Scientist and co-founder Robert Soler, who has expertise in circadian lighting from his work at NASA, the SkyView 2 lamp changes color throughout the day to match the sunrise and sunset times of your location. It stands about 12 inches tall and has an egg-like orb shape on a black base. The lamp can be connected to an iPhone and the accompanying SkyView app through Wi-Fi 2.4GHz and Bluetooth. By registering with the SkyView servers, the lamp automatically adjusts to your local sun schedule and creates a year-round timetable for you. The app also offers presets for different activities like sleeping, reading, relaxing, and working, and there is a button on the lamp base to manually control brightness and settings.
To fully experience the lamp's effects, it is best to place it in the area where you spend most of your time during the day. However, this may require moving the lamp around throughout the day to utilize the slumber-inducing sunset settings. Overall, the SkyView 2 achieves its desired effects and provides a gentle wake-up experience compared to abrupt lighting changes. It also offers a bright, natural light that enhances alertness and is aesthetically pleasing with its gradual color changes. However, improvements can be made to the app's user-friendliness and customization options. Additionally, the price may be considered expensive, particularly for the Pro version. Nevertheless, the SkyView 2's attractive design and effectiveness make it worthwhile for those seeking to improve their day-to-night cycle.
