MIE alumni creators featured in Engineering Holiday Gift Guide

Products created by MIE alumni Amol Rao (MIE MASc 1T8) and Huda Idrees (IndE 1T3) are featured in the 2020 U of T Engineering Holiday Gift Guide.

Blue Block Glasses

With many of us working from home, were feeling the consequences of our tech-reliance in the quality of our sleep. Created by U of T Engineering MIE alum Amol Rao (MIE MASc 1T8), Somnitude Blue Block Glasses are an easy way to combat the restlessness caused by nighttime blue-light exposure – and they’re backed by solid science.

Studies show that blue light negatively affects the body’s natural circadian rhythm, suppresses melatonin production and delays the onset and quality of sleep.

Scroll in style with Somnitude’s new wayfarer style, or pick up a pair for the kids in your life with youth sizes. Impact and scratch resistant, Blue Block Sunglasses are the perfect way to cut down on blue-light exposure and maximize rest this holiday season.
