Tanita Sleep Scan SL-501

I wake up all the time wondering why I feel great one day and like crap the next.  Tanita Sleep Scan SL-501 is a mat that you place on your bed and underneath your sheets.  Using a set of microphones it records and detects your body motion, heart rate and breathing patterns to an SD card.  The data can then be downloaded to a PC and your sleeping patterns will displayed in an easy to use graph telling you when you woke up, how long you were asleep and more.

At $576 I’d just as soon opt for the Zio sleep system, which monitors your brain waves and costs far less.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
