A new sleep mask could help you get more done on less hours of sleep and still feel fully rested. For those of you who feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done, sleeping less is really the only way to do more. At the same time though, you don’t want to sacrifice sleep and rest, which are critical for creativity and productivity. The NeuroOn sleep mask relies on the principle of Polyphasic sleep patterns, which means you sleep for multiple short periods throughout the day. The mask monitors your brainwaves wakes you at the right moments feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work and it may even cut your sleep back to just two hrs a day.
Traveling, jet lag, work, stress, and just life in general affects our sleep and likewise, our sleep affects all the other things. Rest is important, but so is everything else, and if there was just a way to get rest and do everything you need, it would all be peachy. Intelclinic has created the NueroOn sleep mask that monitors your brainwaves to help you move from monophasic to polyphasic sleep. Basically this means sleeping multiple times a day for shorter periods and in some cases you can reduce your total sleep time down to 2 hrs a day. Imagine what all you could accomplish if you were awake and rested for 22 hrs a day.
The mask is outfitted with a series of sensors to monitor your biological signals, including your brainwaves (EEG), muscle tension (EMG) and eye movements (EOG). This data is sent wirelessly to your smart phone via Bluetooth and analyzed in the accompanying app. After you finish going through REM sleep, the mask should wake you up feeling rested and recharged. Intelclinic claims their mask is the first to measure these biologic signals and can even help induce you into lucid dreaming if you want. Their Kickstarter Campaign is near completion and fully funded with masks starting at $225.
