Cool ElectricSleep - Smart Alarm & Sleep Analysis

Hey guys,

In an effort to spread its popularity, I though I would share my open-source app, ElectricSleep here. It has been in beta for a couple months and is starting to get pretty stable and more and more feature rich.

==boilerplate from market:
Improve the quality of your sleep with this smart alarm clock.
ElectricSleep is an alarm clock that records your sleep cycles and wakes you up gently during a light sleep cycle. The sleep data it records is saved and analyzed so that you can understand and improve upon your sleeping habits.

Please donate to support development!

Features:
  • records and saves your sleep cycle data.
  • alarm clock gently wakes you during light sleep.
  • analyzes sleep trends (debt, quality, duration, etc.)

The question that comes up everytime I see such an app:
Do you have it under your pillow or something to check how you move?

Because mostly my phone is just on a drawer at night.

I sleep in a double bed with my pregnant wife and two small dogs. Will it work for me, and where should I place my phone?

I believe (I am not expert), that the science behind it has something to do with the amount of movements you make in your bed. Every stage of sleep can then be recognized by the phone (app). It does require (at least I think so) some training to recognize your sleep-"style".

and....you will have to put it on your bed itself (besides your pillow, never under it! >heat etc..<)

I am going to try it though...

Probably not as well as it should, but give it a try. Put it as close to your body as you can, so as to minimize the movement it picks up from others.

At the most basic level, it will alarm if you move right before your alarm is set.
Taken from wikipedia: "There is a greater amount of deep sleep (stage N3) earlier in the sleep cycle, while the proportion of REM sleep increases later in the sleep cycle and just before natural awakening." During REM, your muscles are more or less paralyzed, and you will not move. Right after, during lighter stages, you will. This is when the smart alarm acts.

I don't personally have it under my pillow, but rather about a foot or two away on the top corner of my bed (and I have a relatively hard bed.) It does need to be near you though

Sounds promising, but the 'setup' part of it is much more difficult than it should be.

Perhaps you should have it prompt for an action and then a confirmation that it's been done; all that 'line-pulling' needs to be done by the app...
