Last month at TED conference, a “Photon Shower” chamber meant to cure jetlag made a lot of waves. The chamber, still in concept demo, is the result of neuroscience and sleep research by Professor Russell Foster of Oxford, and is underwritten by Delta as part of the airline’s attempts to improve the sleep experiences of its passengers.

Prof Foster gave a lunchtime talk at TED about the science of body clocks and the effect of jetlag on the clocks, and what could be done to overcome it, by exposing it to light in various phases.
