From your Darkened cubicle, the only light that finds you emits from the computer monitor. You stare enviously at middle management, with their view of the outside; and (even worse) upper management, with their corner offices bathing them in natural light. Your skin is pasty and translucent—don’t let your soul follow suit. The Zadro Sunlight 365 rebalances melatonin and serotonin levels to battle Seasonal Affective Disorder and depression by emitting safe artificial sunlight. Available at sharperimage.com. $59.99.
Tired of talking to people? Does face-to-face interaction make you long for a Castaway-like vacation? Apple’s iPhone has solved most of these problems with its fancy, New-Age text messaging and e-mail. But lifetime batteries have yet to take root, and all those fancy apps blast through energy with abandon. Quick, before that stranger attempts eye contact, restore your phone’s power by plugging it into the Zagg Sparq, the world’s most powerful portable battery charger. With enough power to recharge your iPhone four times, there’s a good chance you may never have to speak again. Purchase at zagg.com. $99.99.
