Today a Kickstarter campaign launched for Silentmode, a 100% blackout audio mask that lets users instantly “tune out” and rejuvenate via powernaps. It immediately blocks out all external visual and auditory disturbances, creating a personal, stress-free private space so users can nap anywhere at anytime. It is now available for $99 USD on Kickstarter (retail price: $149 USD).

Silentmode implements passive noise cancellation and customized frequency settings to lull users into the perfect level of relaxation. Users simply select the “nap mode” they desire from the Silentmode app and slip on the mask. Silentmode’s proprietary nap training audio ‘Breathonics’ then quickly and efficiently guides the brain to relax accordingly. The smart napping alarm system gradually wakes up the mask-wearer, depending on the length of the nap and the complexity of the music. Users can also listen to podcasts, audiobooks, or their own music with Silentmode’s Bluetooth pairing.

“Power-nappers can adjust the soundscapes for the optimal mood mode, from a deeper session during a 10-hour flight to a 20-minute switch-off for focus improvement,” said co-founder Jens H. Nielson. “The effects are immediate. A study we conducted found an average heart rate reduction of 19% in users who used Silentmode to relax in less than 5 minutes.”

Breathonics, the mask’s accompanying breath training course, uses sonic signals to teach users how to control their breathing patterns. It combines audio guidelines, binaural safe frequencies, and music to guide concentration or relaxation. Silentmode is working with a number of artists around the globe to create the music; their first collaboration is with English musician Dom Howard from the band Submotion Orchestra.

In addition to its auditory features, Silentmode’s physical design also improves comfort and relaxation. Formed eye placements promote comfortable sleep and 360° grade-3 memory foam hugs users’ features for pure immersion. Breathable bamboo cotton ensures the entire process stays cool and fresh.

“My mom was a yoga teacher, so I grew up learning about the impact of our breath and taking time to relax our mind and body for well-being,” said co-founder Bradley Dowding-Young. “People are always on the go these days and stress is one of the biggest problems we face in society today, but in order to properly ‘tune in’, everyone needs a little time to ‘tune out’.”

Silentmode will be available on Kickstarter November 1 - 22, 2017 for $99 USD. The estimated delivery date is April 2018. Media wishing to interview Silentmode personnel should contact PR agent, Borjana Slipicevic.
