Simple Tips and Tools for Three Common Sleep Disorders
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/28/simple-tips-and-tools-for-three-common-sleep-disorders/

The Emberify blog has some tips for dealing with three major sleep disorders.

Insomnia – evening exercise, low carb diet, reduce caffeine
Hypnagogic Jerks – stretch before bed
REM Sleep – avoid alcohol, take magnesium, calcium, vitamin C or iron.

Via Emberify Blog:

The Quantified Self is all about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, while at the same time keeping track of all the parameters and inputs which affect the lifestyle. While fitness is definitely the most important parameter to track and lifelog about, another key facet to record comes in the form of sleep, and tracking the hours/quality of sleep.

Now while we have spoken quite extensively about the types of sleep trackers out there, and the methodologies involved in tracking sleep, we haven’t really spoken about how sleep disorders may be addressed by the Quantified Self. Be it simple things such as insomnia, or more complex disorders such as sleep apnoea, there’s a cure to it all, and it comes in the form of sleep tracking. Since I am a good sleeper, I use Instant to track basic sleep duration, since it’s automatic.

And that shall be the crux of this article: Through some of my own experiments, and the knowledge gathered through a fair amount of research, I try to decode some common sleep disorders and work out the relation with sleep tracking.

Lighted Motorized Halloween Pumpkin Bracelet #3DThursday #3DPrinting
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/29/lighted-motorized-halloween-pumpkin-bracelet-3dthursday-3dprinting/

Fun Halloween inspired print from YouMagine:

Prior to assembly, test fit and trim, file, sand, etc. all parts as necessary for smooth movement of moving surfaces, and tight fit for non moving surfaces. Depending on the colors you chose and your printer settings, more or less trimming, filing and/or sanding will be required. If the tight fitting components are too loose, add a small dot of cyanoacrylate to each side of the pin, allow to dry completely (I use accelerator to speed the process), then try the fit again. Repeat until tight.

jcarolinares shares:

This year I collaborated as a volunteer at Mini Maker Faire Madrid. The event was awesome and I wanted to record a lot of things while I was working.

So I decided to use the Maker Faire Robot as a camera holder for my Polaroid Cube camera. It worked great and people loved it!
