We’re all too familiar with that groggy sensation we experience when woken up abruptly by alarm, but, with the Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock you’ll never have to experience such a feeling again. The clever application analyses your sleep patterns and wakes you during your lightest sleep phase. It’s creators say that waking up easy is all about timing and that waking up during a light sleep is just like waking up naturally rested without an alarm.
The designers explain that as you sleep, you go through a cycle of sleep phases. The sleep cycle is usually repeated several times each night and lasts roughly 90 minutes each time. The first stage is light sleep followed by the REM or deep sleep state during which dreaming takes place.
The nifty app uses your phone’s accelerometer to identify each sleep phase by tracking your movements in bed. It then wakes you during your lightest sleep phase using a 30 minute alarm window. It’s hard to believe but waking 30 minutes earlier could result in you feeling much more refreshed than 30 minutes later during a deeper sleep phase.
