Lumos at ACTE Paris 2018!

December 13th, 2018

What’s better than telling travelers about Lumos?

Telling 600 corporate travelers about Lumos in Paris, the most beautiful city in the world 🙂

Happily, I had the opportunity to do just that at this year’s annual summit of The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE). The ACTE is a globally recognized, premier corporate travel organization that investigates and advocates for improvements in corporate travel, including new technologies like the Lumos Smart Sleep Mask. As such, we were invited to present in their Opening Plenary Session this past October, sharing details about how our technology can help business travel be more productive by reducing jet lag. (Click here to watch the 30-second video that we submitted as a preview to the audience.)

A little backstory here: I got to know the Executive Director of ACTE, Greeley Koch, in April of 2018 when I went to Lumos’s first ACTE summit in New York. He is a great gentleman and unsurprisingly, a road warrior in his own right. Of course, what really grabbed his attention was the Lumos prototype I gave him, which completely convinced him of the efficacy of our Smart Sleep Mask. Clearly our prototype ‘bribe’ made a good impression, as Koch introduced my main stage address by saying “I know I’m supposed to be impartial… but B has given me a prototype of what she was going to talk about, and I have to tell you, it is amazing.”

The response to our presentation was positive, to say the least. The audience’s interest in our Smart Sleep Mask was almost overwhelming, as everybody seemed to want one. It was definitely a successful summit, and as appropriate for a trip to Paris, the food was amazing!

Bon voyage, jet lag – fresh review of Lumos by CNET

September 5th, 2018

Flying to Australia is fun! …until you think about the 20-hour flight and being jet lagged on 16 time zones away from where you started.

CNET editor Lexy Savvides has tackled this challenge many times, but thanks to our Lumos Smart Sleep Mask, she was finally able to arrive jet lag-free when she arrived in Australia! Here’s what she said in her recent Wearable Tech article:

“I was shocked at how much better I felt compared with previous journeys on the same flight. I was energized and stayed up until my usual bedtime… The next day I felt totally adjusted to Sydney time, with no jet lag symptoms. ”

To hear the full story, watch her trip to Sydney with Lumos.

 

Of course, we want everyone to share Lexy’s wonderful travel experience with Lumos. That’s why we are taking pre-orders from everyone now. Pre-order your Lumos Smart Sleep Mask today and say goodbye to jet lag!

 

There must be something special about this Lumos Sleep Mask on The Wall Street Journal…

August 2nd, 2018

What’s better than a great write-up in The Wall Street Journal?

Being written up in The Wall Street Journal twice!

So as you may have seen, Lumos was on The Wall Street Journal again last week! Some of you may have known us from the previous Wall Street Journal article where a reporter tested our product for jet lag and really liked it. This time the article talked about high-tech masks to help people sleep, and Lumos was on top of the list for its amazing ability to adjust circadian rhythm for jet lag, shift workers, and night owls.

Here’s one juicy detail from behind the scenes:

The editors were very impressed by the comfort of the Lumos Smart Sleep Mask sample that we sent them, so they wanted to emphasize the comfort by revealing the materials in the article. However, we think that you early adopters should be the first to know what the mask is made of, so we decided to keep the materials a secret for now. Apparently, The Wall Street Journal didn’t like mysteries, so the discussion about comfort and materials was left out of the article in the end 🙂

That being said, we are still thrilled about our coverage in The Wall Street Journal. The Lumos Smart Sleep Mask will be available very soon. Reserve yours now and let us know on Facebook or Twitter just how comfortable the mask is once it’s in your hands!
