At this year’s CES, there was a variety of tech options designed to offset your electronic addiction, so can new tech devices save us from our tech addictions?
Umay Rest, is based on the principle that specific doses of thermotechnology can help reverse screen-time side effects such as strained eyes. Every time we blink, a small trace of oil is released into our eyes. When we blink less while staring at a screen, this natural process doesn’t happen as often, leaving our eyes dry and irritated. Heat reactivates that oil, releasing it onto our eyes to relieve discomfort. Not only does Umay Rest help reset your eyes physically, but the idea of closing your eyes for a few minutes to recover from your day also has positive mental effects.
It’s hard to say whether devices like Umay Rest help to reverse or simply enable our bad habits. So if you are interested, you can learn more and join Umay’s waitlist here.
