Revolutionary Lighting Technology That Mimics Natural Light- Reset Your Circadian Rhythm
This discussion will review the importance of circadian rhythm in the human psyche. Your perception of circadian rhythm is both psychological and biological, where the psychological is the aspect of what you can see, such as the changing colours of light from the sun throughout the different times of the day. While, the biological response is based on the non-visual receptors in your eye that are taking cues from the natural daylight, but not available from typical artificial light sources. We will discuss the new design approaches which mimic the natural daylight cycle by artificial light sources from a technical and aesthetic approach.
