It was only a matter of time before someone created something like the Optocoupler. The Optocoupler essentially relieves the digitally depressed brain by introducing a spalike environment just for the head.

Designed by Ludwig Zeller, who is known for channeling his fascination for everything science-fiction into design, the Optocoupler encourages users to come home after a hard day at work and use it to decompress and relax. Basically, once you lay down and encase your entire head within the triangular Optocoupler, it begins to project disco-ball-esque strobing patterns onto your face while a digital cracking sounds off as well, lulling you into calmness.

The Optocoupler was created to provoke thought and discussion more than anything else, however.
