Called the Re-Timer, it is a wearable green light device that emits a soft green light onto the eyes.These spectacles developed by a team of sleep psychologists at Australia’s Flinders University were developed through 25 years of research, and is said to help reduce jet lag, increase energy in the winter months, overcome sleeplessness, and manage fatigue, especially for shift workers!

The glasses have a lightweight design, rechargeable battery, and a USB cable for charging. The Retimer also comes with a carrying case and a frequent flyer calculator that calculates when to use the device for optimal results to counter jet lag.
