SilentMode Review: A High-Tech Mask For Napping | Future Tech Reviews | NowThis


Naps are amazing, but it's hard sometimes to find a quiet space Unless you bring the quiet space to you

Like, I could put it and lean back Everyone wants to go to napland sometimes Enter silent mode A new sleep mask that supposedly makes it a breeze to catch some Zs It's a thick padded sleep mask with a built-in cushion speaker system so that you can connect it to your phone and hopefully block out the world

Let me show you around the product first Now this is just a prototype that we have, and there are going to be a few tweaks to the general aesthetic They're going to be changing the size of it a little bit, and the hardware is going to be a lot more sturdy inside The app that they have right now for iOS devices is a beta version, and they're actually going to be revamping the entire app, and adding an Android app which they currently don't have But in the app you'll be able to pick the type of nap that you want to take, like a power nap and then the duration of the nap depending on how tired you are

It'll start to play nice music, and then you just strap this on to your head and you're off to nap land And now I'm dead to the world Commander! Problem on the bridge, Captain Shields is 60 percent Now, we really wanted to put this thing to the test

I had one of my co-workers use this to nap in the newsroom which is using the product as it was advertised And then I had one of my co-workers try it out, standing up in the subway in New York City which is not how it's advertised It was a lot more relaxing than one might think I don't recommend it Don't

Don't be blindfolded in the middle of a subway platform But I did feel relaxed coming out of it I almost fell asleep, but the Baby Beluga music or song like stopped halfway Do you usually nap standing up Sometimes

SilentMode You need to add more ambient noise some fire plays some jazz I do think this would be great for migraines I suffer from migraines, and it blocks all light, and also kind of like the pressure is like good for when you have a headache that bad Well I definitely do think that it blocks out pretty much all of the light with the sound was kind of like close footsteps and obviously like trains I could hear

Given all of the changes that they're going to be making for the consumer product, would you buy this? No Yes, I do think so I wouldn't use it in the office I just put it If someone were to go gift it to me, I'd use it on a plane

Every time I go to nap I always get distracted by little things So if they were like remarket themselves as a migraine device, and make that ear earpieces soundproof [Click] I would definitely purchase it And I love napping, so So overall the silent mode is pretty great

It's comfortable It completely blocks out your vision and it does a decent job of blocking out the noise It could be a little bigger for those who have big heads and lots of hair I have a huge head But the creators have told me that they'll probably be extending the Velcro on the back

But for a prototype this was really solid And I'm really excited to see what the consumer product is going to bring if all of these changes are implemented Just make sure that you have an iPad or iPhone for now I feel like I say that a lot Go on off to napland

Go on off Off you go Off you are to napland
