Did you know it is ~100x brighter outside than it is inside? Now you have a way to tell your brain the sun is shining! Feel happy, alert, and more focused, then be ready to fall asleep naturally when the Day Shift™ signal turns off. The Sky Portal is similar to a high powered SAD light, delivering well over 60,000 melanopic lux of 480nm Sky Blue, blended with 810nm NIR for cellular protection.
This original version of the Sky Portal is the ultimate tool for circadian rhythm support and photobiomodulation-driven cognitive enhancement! Blend sky blue 480nm and 810nm near-infrared LEDs in any ratio you want.
Light blue (sky blue) wavelengths stimulate melanopsin containing cells, which act as wakefulness/sleepiness controllers. These are the key wavelengths and photoreceptor pathways that when stimulated, promote alertness and circadian rhythm regularity.
Set to max brightness on the sky blue channel, melanopic lux is equivalent to ~60,000 lux without seeming as bright or harsh since there is no green or dark blue. Our customers say it reminds them of the sky.
The Sky Portal uniquely promotes circadian and mental health through stimulation of light blue wavelengths by drowning out harsh short wavelength dark blue light from your ambient lighting and screens by causing your pupils to contract with healthy long wavelength sky blue, and balancing out the blue with a natural 810nm NIR for cellular health.
If you're familiar with red light therapy, you'll know near-infrared has been shown to have a wide range of benefits! In addition to mitigating the damage from the harsh high intensity blue found in screens, NIR has been shown to increase cognitive function, promote healthy skin, enhance sleep, reduce eye-strain, and generally make your mitochondria function better! The Sky Portal is the first device designed for all day NIR exposure. Now you don't need to change your routine to get the benefits of red light therapy.
This is more than a S.A.D. light. This is a portal connecting the interior of a building to a natural outdoor setting. A 450mm diameter large surface area light means the Sky Portal light doesn't appear harsh in your field of view. The Sky Portal is an ultra-thin light panel with a tripod included for easy setup.
A healthy circadian rhythm is vital to maintain for long-term health. Regulated melatonin production is vital for deep and restorative sleep for optimal performance and productivity throughout the day. A disrupted circadian rhythm leads to worse sleep, a foggy mind, and worse health outcomes. Eliminating circadian rhythm disruptions is one of the most effective wellness "biohacks".
Your Sky Portal should ideally be paired with our Carbonshade glasses that block Blue AND Green light that disrupt sleep in the evening. You want melanopic light during the day, and you want to avoid it in the evening before you go to sleep.
We're confident you'll love your Sky Portal within the first few weeks, and if you don't, you can send it back to us for a full refund.
