Deep sleep is very important to your health. It is the stage of sleep you need to feel rejuvenated when you wake up in the morning.
Our body goes through different phases of sleep during a night: a phase in which we move our eyes very fast, the REM phase (rapid-eye movement), and a non-REM phase, which is subdivided into three different levels.
When your body is in the deepest of the 3 sleep phases of REM, your heartbeat and respiration slow down to a minimum and your muscles relax. This is the most regenerative phase of sleep and is often called “slow wave sleep”.
Philips’ new SmartSleep is the world’s first and only clinically-proven wearable solution for consumers to improve deep sleep quality for people who do not get enough sleep due to lifestyle, according to the company.
It’s a soft foam headband you are meant to wear to bed. Once you slip on the headset, 2 small built-in sensors connect to your forehead and behind your ears to monitor brain activity and using advanced algorithms accurately identifies your different sleep stages during the night.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
