This paper presents an autobiographical design process aiming towards aesthetically pleasing light-therapy device that can be augmented on the body and in the everyday life of the wearer. The design (fig. 1) is meant for easing seasonal affective disorder symptoms through longer and less bright light therapy sessions (e.g., 2 hours with max 2500 Lux brightness) than with typical light box. The glasses were chosen as a formfactor as they allow user to accomplish other tasks, such as eating breakfast, commuting, or working while on a light therapy. The resulting design is moderately small and easy to integrate into everyday life through classical eye-glasses look and adjustable lighting output. First author's initial experiences in real-life use, however, indicate that the design is not completely socially acceptable as light output puts him too much on display.
