The airline is showing off a concept shower at TED that recreates the effects of sunlight to help people recover from a long flight.

In a demo at the TED conference in Long Beach, California, Delta showed off a concept shower that could be used to help passengers recover from jet lag. It uses light to alter the body’s internal clock, similar to the Re-Timer glasses.

The ‘Photon Shower’ is a light chamber designed by Wieden + Kennedy New York with the help of sleep expert Dr. Russell Foster, who held a talk at TED to outline his research on how light can be used to realign our body clocks after long flights.
