There you are, running through the desert being chased by god knows what, or maybe you’re making eyes with some cute stranger across a crowded room, and you’re walking toward each other and then Beep! Beep! Beep! You’re awake.
Jerked unwillingly out of your dream world, confused, cranky, blurry-eyed.
Even if you hit snooze and gratefully sink back into your pillow three, four, five times, it’s already done. You’re doomed to yawn your way through the day, just wishing you could go back to sleep. Because that evil little alarm clock decided to pull you rudely out of a REM cycle.
Enter the Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock application for iPhone.
Developed by Swedish designer LexWare Labs AB, the app is a bio-alarm clock that tracks and analyses your sleep patterns, and wakes you up when you’re in light sleep so you’re more likely to feel refreshed and rested in the morning.
Being woken up when you’re in light sleep is like waking up on your own without an alarm clock – which, most people would agree, is generally a much more pleasant experience than being jarred out of a deep sleep. What you may not realize is that it can actually impact your entire day.
