Digital Sleeping Pills

How’d you sleep? In America, one-third of adults don’t get enough sleep, according to the CDC. You’re in exhausted company (including with this writer) if sleep eluded you yet again.

Here's a solution you haven’t tried yet — a Digital Sleeping Pill.

Chris Aimone and the makers at Interaxon have launched their newest headband, Muse S Gen 2. It's designed to help you fall asleep and guide you back to sleep if you wake up.

If you’re not familiar with Muse products: Interaxon has been making its brain-sensing headbands since 2012. They use EEG (Electroencephalography), technology that’s used to help diagnose conditions like epilepsy and dementia. Brainwaves send the wearable real-time feedback on your brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements. This information combines with guided meditation and practice to help you with sleep, stress, and focus.

Unlike previous models, the next generation of Muse was created to provide immediate relief, and it uses what Muse calls a Digital Sleeping Pill to do it (emphasis on “digital”; no actual pills involved.)

“Digital Sleeping Pills are a new type of intelligent sleep experience that uses natural changes in your brain activity to modulate your sleep experience and cue your brain for sleep,” Aimone explained.

Muse S works when you pair your headband (a soft plush-one) with your mobile device and your own (hopefully comfortable) headphones. If you wake in the night, Muse pairs the information it’s gathered from your brainwaves to serve up content for guiding you back to sleep.

The content is similar to what you can find on other calm-inducing apps: sleep stories, ambient soundscapes, and guided meditation. All of it is available to first-generation users, too.

If you’re going to splurge on sleep, you might put EightSleep up for consideration too. The makers of The Pod smart mattress launched SleepOS earlier this year. The app uses machine-learning algorithms to automatically adjust the mattress temperature using your profile preferences and then learns based on your feedback.

Reflect Academy is part of MacCaw newest product, a note-taking app called Reflect which will launch later this year, according to MacCaw tweets. The guide, however, can be applied for the most part to any networked note-taking tool, including Obsidian and Roam Research.
