The Problem

When’s the last time you went outside and the sky was the same colour and brightness the entire day. OK, yes, maybe in Dawson City in the middle of a summer night when the sun doesn’t really set. Pretty freaky that.

But for most of us, natural daylight shifts hour to hour and that has to be duplicated inside a building if we’re to keep our biological clock functioning properly.

Unfortunately, current technology is badly outdated. Office lighting is often that blue-spectrum fluorescent fixture that hasn’t changed in decades. And even if you’re lucky enough to have a warmer tint to your light, it still doesn’t change like sunlight throughout the day.

That messes with our internal clocks and causes issues like trouble falling asleep, lack of focus, bad moods, memory loss, health concerns … do I really have to go on?

The Nano-Lit Solution

What the body actually needs is a Human Centric Lighting (HCL), which includes the needs of actual humans in the design of lighting. (I know, pretty radical.)

Nano-Lit does this with cutting edge quantum dot technology.

Have you ever seen a quantum dot nanoparticle magnified? It’s like a big ball of Styrofoam covered in colourful wrinkled crepe paper. (You can see what I’m talking about here https://www.nano-lit.com/quantumdots/.) It looks like it might be huge, but 10,000 of them can fit in the width of a human hair.

So what’s the big deal with these nanoparticles? They can reproduce natural light and be programmed to shift that light during the day.

They’re made of a special material that gets “excited” by light or electricity. (Yah, not that kind of excited.) When that happens, they emit colours that are truer and can imitate natural light better than anything that’s currently on the market, like LED technology. Best of all, Nano-Lit can retrofit fluorescent lighting with a diffuser made up of these quantum dot particles.

The result is lighting that doesn’t mess with our biorhythms, leading to better health, performance and well-being.
