Living beings are designed to rise and fall with the sun
But we extend our days, live through our nights and gallivant across the globe. Our natural body clocks are at odds with modern routines. As a result, energy levels dim, moods flatten, and our minds have to fight through a fog.
Scientist and engineer Juuso Nissila and Antti Aunio launched Valkee in 2007, to fight through the long, dark winters of their home in northern Finland.
Inspired by our brain as the central ‘mood’ system and our body as the timekeeper, Valkee – the world’s first bright light headset – brings light to the parts of ourselves that need it most.
So together we can exist as complete living beings – happy, focused and inspired by another day, no matter the weather or time zone.
