Make Your Visor Useful Asleep or Awake
JETLOG has released the 24x7 PowerNapping Springboard module, which lets users properly time their power naps to get the most benefit. Following sleeping strategies created by NASA for astronauts and pilots in flight, the module's onboard sensors time power naps according to the best sleep stages. It is available only from PalmGear for $100.
Properly timing naps to prevent deep sleep and dreaming not only relieves negative post nap effects such as grogginess, disorientation, or headaches, but also avoids later sleep loss, which would otherwise interfere with regular sleep.
It uses a touch-sensor located on the 24x7 PowerNapping Springboard module specifically designed to monitor a person's transitions into critical sleep stages. It initiates wake-up calls whenever the person who touches the sensor starts diving into deep sleep or dreaming by detecting a significant drop of correlated muscle tension.
"Managing tight time schedules has always been a core function of the handheld computer, and JETLOG's innovative approach will help busy, on-the-go people combat fatigue and maximize efficiency," said Rita Sharma, business development manager at Handspring.
JETLOG's 24x7 PowerNap software is based on BigClock 2.8. It allows simple application control and displays Total Nap Times as well as info such as optional timer and alarm settings on the main screen.
The module provides options for discrete wake-up calls via included headsets and personal wakeup call recordings over the Visor microphone.
