From Energy-Boosting Eyewear to Mood-Enhancing Smart Bulbs

While many edible options aim to increase energy, there are also a myriad of alternative aids that appeal to other human senses while offering similar mood-boosting results. A winning example includes an aromatic vending machine that was placed on a public transit platform -- the installation offered morning commuters bottles filled with pleasant scents. The goal of this project was to ease the morning stress of commuters and to encourage productivity throughout the day.

Lighting also plays an important role in one's mood and energy levels. The Ilumi Smart Bulbs change color and illuminate soothing energies in order to increase the relaxation of users. The bulbs are controlled by a smartphone and can be adjusted at any point during the day. These bulbs are useful for both at-home and in-office use, making them ideal for busy professionals who are may deal with common work pressures and stresses on a daily basis.

From infographic guides to devices that appeal to the human senses, these examples present consumers with non-edible energy aids. While caffeine can provide a quick-fix for many, informative guides and tech devices ensure users are satisfied and stimulated for extended periods of time -- something a cup of coffee doesn't always ensure.
