What it does
Hacks your biology
The Jet-lag Companion is your ultimate device during your international travel. It is a handheld product that indicates the optimal times for being asleep and awake to minimize your jet lag by exposing you to light. Light exposure assists in resetting your circadian rhythms. Forward your flight itinerary to your companion, select how quickly you want to adjust, and the companion will take care of the rest.
How it works

Your travel companion is a swiss army knife of international travel and is a clock, speaker, light, and anti-jet leg fighter all rolled into one. It's silicon body emanates light when you need it and it even has a physical slot in the back so you can place the device in the airplane pocket in front of you.
The companion has a digital interface where it displays faces to communicate what mode it is in.
