Sleep Smart

Have you ever felt that you have had a full night’s sleep, but you still feel tired when your alarm rings? When we sleep, we repeatedly move through several cycles of brain activity. It is incorrectly believed that an extra 15 minutes of sleep would make us feel better. What actually makes us feel alert and energetic, however, is being awoken out of the right sleep cycle.
The scientific community has known about this phenomenon for decades, but the technology has not existed to take advantage of it — until now. Enter SleepSmart: an intelligent alarm clock that monitors your sleep cycles as you sleep, waking you at the ideal moment from the optimal stage of sleep. This optimal moment might be several minutes prior to your set alarm time. However, when you wake up, you will be refreshed and ready for action — just as if you had awoken naturally.
I guess you wear this device around your head. Wouldn't it get in the way of your sleep?

Oh, did you find this for ME? It's exactly what I've been needing! When I was researching excessive dreaming, it was recommended that if the sufferer had a bedmate, he or she should actually WAKE the person stuck in the dreaming phase... to aid in restfull sleep.
