The Daylight DC1 is designed for mental wellbeing.

This breakthrough technology is complemented by a zero blue light pure amber backlight, reducing eye strain and promoting better sleep and a healthier circadian rhythm.

“Daylight is more than a product; it’s a movement towards a more humane and focused way of interacting with technology,” said Katta, who is also founder of Daylight, in a statement. “Our goal is to create devices that encourage users to reconnect with the natural world and their own thoughts, rather than being constantly overstimulated by screens. And this is only the start.”

The first set of Daylight DC1 units has already sold out in preorders, underscoring the high demand and excitement surrounding this revolutionary product. The next round of preorders is now open here.

“Daylight represents a comprehensive vision for a new era of personal computing, one where technology adapts to humanity, not the other way around,” added Katta. “We are thrilled to introduce the world to the Daylight DC1 and look forward to fostering a healthier, more focused tech future.”
