The Quantified Mind : Guided Experiments to Test Mental Performance
The Quantified Mind site is presently running five free experiments to see what makes you smarter. The tests on the site are designed to measure your working memory, reaction times, motor and executive functions. The experiments being tested are:
time of day effects
The tests range in duration from 4-10 minutes each and require between 23 to 50 sessions. Learning which of these things effects your performance could optimize workday performance. You can even create your own tests through their site. This seems like it would be a good tool for testing supplements and nootropics for performance enhancing claims. After you complete an experiment you can see go to their “Data Minding” area to view and download your results.
The coffee experiment would look like this:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
