There's plenty of evidence to suggest the combination of staring at a screen all day and a failure to "unplug" after work is generally unhealthy. But, apart from throwing in the towel and retreating to some hermit-friendly off-the-grid cabin, what's the secret to staying sane and healthy in the digital age?

The stark white, five by seven-foot single-person retreat looks straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and comes equipped with screens and an immersive audio system designed to help you relax, regain focus, and enhance mental acumen. As its team of developers like to say, it's essentially a "gymnasium for the mind."

Depending on the particular deficiency you may be feeling at any given moment of the day, you'll be able to step away from your desk, settle in, shut the door, and queue up one of their proprietary software programs, which will be designed to target precise areas of stress.

Welcome to 2015, when machines meditate for  you.
