F.lux Updates To Help Tech Users Sleep Easier

17 October 2013

 

There seems to be a link between staring at a computer or device screen late at night and having difficulty sleeping, but F.lux wants to help all tech users sleep easier. And because shutting down your devices several hours before bedtime is not always an option, F.lux has found a solution that works directly with the devices to prevent tech-induced cases of insomnia.

“We know that night-time exposure to blue light keeps people up late,” F.lux said on its company website. “We believe that f.lux adjusts colors in a way that greatly reduces the stimulating effects of blue light at night.”

This week, the company released a free updated version of its software that aims to help screen addicts everywhere get a better night’s rest. Sounds great, but how does it work?

F.lux cleverly manipulates the colour of your computer monitor depending on what time of the day it is. As it gets later in the evening, the program begins to subtly filter out the blue light from the screen. As the blue tint is removed, the screen takes on a reddish tint, which is less confusing for your brain and makes it easier to fall asleep when the time comes to power down.

The blue light that normally emanates from many technological devices and from our computer screens sends signals to the brain suggesting that its daytime, when really it could be any time of night. The blue glow of technological devices inhibits your body’s melatonin production and disrupts normal sleeping patterns.

The use of F.lux to filter the blue light from your computer screen can help you attain a more regular sleeping pattern. Plus the program gives the user control over which colour temperatures the screen adjusts to at different points during the day.
