Inducing/Experimenting with Hypnagogia & trance states with the Bangle.js #WearableWednesday
Fascinating look into using wearables to explore transitional states between sleep and wakefulness. This tip was sent in from Ben Jabituya:
In this post I’m going to give an overview of how we can explore the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep, which has associations with various phenomena including Out of body experiences/Astral Projection and hallucinations related to loss of sense of self and distortion in perception of space and time. This state has always been of interest in human history, it has been the inspiration of Salvador Dali’s art, Aristotle’s writings and Thomas Edison, who attributed a lot of his insights to lucid thoughts within Hypnagogia.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
