    Yup…
    Totally proven scientifically. Borderline between “As Seen On TV” and “Snake Oil Mfg. Co.”

    @andix This might work for someone who needs something to fixate on other than the racing thoughts of their work, family, or other responsibilities as they try to relax enough to fall asleep. I don’t think it’s promising that the magic blue rays are acting on your brain in mysterious ways. Magic rays cost most more than $40! ;)

    The first thing I thought on seeing this was “wait – I thought blue light exposure before bed was shown to INHIBIT sleep?!” So I Googled and found this page of references to that:

    I actually got a multicolored LED strip and hooked it up to an arduino. From 10p to 4a it’s a low intensity dark red. At 4a it slowly changes to white and gradually brightens. My alarm goes off at 4:15a.

    The strip runs around my window (which is usually shuttered). The effect when I wake makes it APPEAR as daylight is coming through my shutters. And it’s more than enough to illuminate the room. Makes getting up in the morning easy and should I need to get up at night it’s not pitch black. I can not only see, but if the it doesn’t effect my night vision.

    Blue not only doesn’t really help me sleep, but it ends up causing some “black-light” effects that can detract from attempts to sleep. Particularly if you have whites or yellows in your room.

    I’ve long suffered from insomnia and tinnitus (car engine explosion + too many years of loud music). This + having some SOUND drown out the ringing I constantly hear allows me to sleep reasonably well.

    HAH! You don’t SEE blue light with these. You will see REDDISH light. Through your closed eyelids.

    My 11 year old daughter pointed that out to me…
