You’re not alone in wishing there was some magical way to get through the day without hitting that afternoon slump. We’ve all been there.

But, get this: Instead of reaching for a cup of coffee in the future when 3 PM hits (or crawling under your desk and closing your eyes for a few minutes), you could be getting through your afternoon with Thync. It’s a wearable device that sticks to your forehead and uses various pulse settings to either boost your mood (like caffeine!) or calm you down (like a nap!).

It’s definitely on the pricier side at $299, but here’s to hoping that number comes down in the future. In the meantime, check out the video below to see it in action.
