Generating data while I sleep
I’ve got a new favourite iPhone app. It’s called Sleep Cycle and it’s a data junkie’s wet dream of an app.
You set your alarm before you go to bed and place your iPhone beside your pillow. During the night it uses the accelerometer to measure your movements, collecting data on your sleeping pattern. Then it gently wakes you up when you’re in a light stage of sleep.
You can see your sleep patterns for each night on a chart. (That’s how I slept last night at the top of the post.) I’m looking forward to seeing how my pattern changes once I get home and start going to bed sober.
