Sufferers of SAD (seasonal affective disorder) may have a new gadget to fight the winter blues in the form of the VALKEE Bright Light Headset. This headset is designed to pump light directly into the brain to help "stimulate photo-sensitive parts of the gray matter."

Apparently, stimulating gray matter works as VALKEE is reporting that the headset was effective in relieving the symptoms of SAD in 9 out of 10 people. The VALKEE Bright Light Headset is expected to undergo clinical trials soon and are currently priced at $240.
