Scientists develop iPhone application that controls car

So one of James Bond gadgets is now true.

Scientists from The Freie University of Berlin in Germany have developed an iPhone application that allows a car to be controlled by it. Of course, you cannot download it from the iPhone App Store. The scientists had to modify the car for that to work.

Check it out in the video below by BBC News:

iPhone makes life easier for polyphasic sleepers

Last week I was experimenting with Polyphasic Sleep, and specifically the Uberman sleep pattern (read more on Polyphasic Sleep in my other post here) which consists of a 20 minute nap every four hours. One thing I noted during my trial is how my iPhone made this experiment easy for me.

For the Uberman sleep, you need six reminders for each nap during a day, along with six timer alarms to make you wake up from the naps. Setting up those reminders/timer alarms would be so annoying if your alarm only handles one setup a time. Luckily my iPhone made it very simple for me. I could setup in parallel six timer alarms which were always on, and post six reminders for my naps repeated every day, with two alerts five and 15 minutes before each nap.

I absolutely didn’t need to get worried about my naps neither about waking up from them. Though you might hate the iPhone, it will be your best friend if you get to be a polyphasic sleeper, unless you need an ear-popping alarm to make you wake up from those comatose naps!
