A Tiny Night Vision Camera That Lets Your Smartphone See In the Dark

Posted by on Dec 18, 2013 in Tech Toys | 0 comments

If you’ve tried any of the countless smartphone apps that promise to turn your phone’s camera into night vision goggles, you already know they’re all snake oil. If you really want your device to see in the dark, you need a more sensitive sensor and a healthy blast of invisible infrared light, which the Snooperscope delivers. Reminiscent of Sony’s QX100 smartphone camera, the Snooperscope doesn’t boost your handset’s built-in camera—it replaces it all together. A Wi-Fi connection to your Android or iOS device lets you monitor what the scope is seeing in total darkness for up to …read...

Posted by on Dec 14, 2013 in Your Life Now | 0 comments

When you are writing your to-do list, keep a four-color multipen handy and use its colors to make a visual, systematic list. Productivityist’s Mike Vardy has a color-coded system for capturing tasks on paper, which you could easily replicate on a whiteboard or any other analog system. Here’s what each color represents: Green: Things that are associated with professional work or development.

The numbers just don’t add up. Four in 10 people with at least one risk factor for type 2 diabetes–including obesity or high blood pressure–think they have no risk at all, finds a new survey by the American Diabetes Association. Even worse: 80 percent say they’re in good or excellent health. Hiding our weaknesses sometimes comes naturally. “We as human beings try to protect ourselves,” says diabetes educator Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, R.N., who was involved in the research. “We say, ‘I don’t have it that bad. I’m not that overweight.’ ” But in this case, denial can stand in the way of …read...

4 Ways to Outsmart Your Stomach

Your stomach knows what time it is. That’s the new finding from Australian researchers, who discovered that your gut has its own circadian rhythm, much like the one that governs sleep and wake times. When you eat, your stomach stretches out, which activates nerves in your tummy. And how these nerves respond depends on the time of day, says study coauthor Amanda Page, Ph.D. During the day, the nerves are less sensitive, so you can eat more. “The stomach needs to be much fuller before these nerves send signals to the brain that you’re done eating,” says Page. At …read...

Your Natural Winter Energy Boost

Need a spark? Leave the dark. Daylight exposure will perk you up, concludes a new study from the Netherlands. Researchers asked people to go about their business wearing something called a “Daysimeter,” which straps to your head and measures natural light exposure. (We’re picturing Geordi from Star Trek.) Turns out, the more daylight a person soaked up, the more energetic and alert he felt. Also illuminating: Those who suffered from the lowest levels of chronic fatigue tended to soak up nearly twice as much daylight as people who were perpetually worn out, the study shows. Cells in the retinas of your eyes respond to bright light by sending a signal to the alertness centers of your brain, explains study coauthor Yvonne de Kort, Ph.D …read...
