Melbourne, Mar 8: An US airline is attempting to cure jet lag with a "light shower."
Delta Air Lines unveiled its "Sanctuary Space" at a recent TED conference in the US, and it was the Phonton Shower that had everyone talking.
The "shower", designed by Wieden + Kennedy New York with the help of a sleep expert, is the first of its kind and claims to "wash away" the effects of jet lag on the body, News.com.au reported.
"Research by Oxford neuroscience professor Russell Foster shows that bathing in light can alter natural circadian rhythms to help people recover from jet lag," a sign next to the Phonton Shower declared.
"The photon shower by Delta puts this research into practice."
It's a stall-like chamber that creates a light sequence for passengers to "bathe" in.
Those wanting to try it out input their travel data on a touch screen inside the chamber for a personalised light sequence.
A photoreceptor in the eye that senses light and regulates our body clock responds strongly to blue light and a particular wavelength of 480 nanometres.
The airline said that it rapidly resets the body clock. (ANI)
