Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is, supposedly, a very real thing with a, supposedly, very real solution -- the Valkee Earbuds. This device beams light through your ear canals and into your mind to combat the effects of SAD and convince your brain it's still July. $US240.

What? If you're going to put a 4.5m pool in your living room, you might as well go all out and run this down your front hall. It's not like your landlord can get that much more pissed off. $US25.
