Elizabeth, I've been sick for about 2 weeks. The first week was heck(about the worst I have ever felt in my life). The second week I think was self induced by stress. A big ball of stress that I let go of last night. I feel better now. I hope it's not what they call remission. I hope not. I'm tired of being tired and tired of being sick.

There is one thing I do. It doesn't help my sleep, but it helps to not disturb it. I turn off all the ringers on all of my phones. The last thing I want is to be having a GREAT sleep and be woken up by a telemarketer, or even my friends that just want to say "Hey". I can always call them back. I actually have grown to HATE the sound of a ringing phone. A notice on my pc or tv is way better.

Elizabeth. You got me to think. I guess it would be nice to know not only how to fix it, but what it's doing to me. I don't really have set hours either, but that isn't my problem. I just can't stay asleep. No problem falling asleep, it's just staying there that is hard for me. I envy those that can just go to sleep whenever and sleep no problem. It's probably just my bad sleeping habits. No routine..etc.

Indeed, Daniyal, I thank my lucky stars every day. ;) But if it's any consolation, today I used an alrm! And yes, any device that can help me figure out why my sleep is so disturbed would be a handy device for me.

I envy you. But we are all not as lucky as you are.
And yes, if my sleep is uninterrupted i would love to see the analysis too.

Being a custom product designer, I've designed many robust products beyond "weather-resistant" --  (some even submersible) -- which have changeable batteries;  so that's not really a difficult hurdle to overcome.  More to your other point, where the  integrity of the lock "body" itself may be something less than solid to accommodate battery , circuitry & antenna.  That was the original though behind the comment to let an experienced lock company to do it.  ( ,,,and I just notice I spelled "Legacy" wrong in the Red Headline!  [Sorry!]  )

Ah, Daniyal, I know what you mean. I am one of those people fortunate enough to not have to use an alarm to wake up, because I have a flexible work schedule (I use an alarm only if I need to be up really early for something), and your comment made me think what a luxury that is. Imagine just sleeping through until you've gotten a decent night's sleep instead of being jarred awake by a machine! So the idea of even more intrusion into sleep probably isn't that inviting. Then again, as I said in my previous comment, because my sleep is often interrupted, it might be nice to know how I can change that.

Cool. I never thought we could analyze so much about our self while we sleep.

P.S: The alarm clock wasn't enough?! Now we have to deal with this! Lol.

Re: The hand guided plane

Those examples you mentioned can also be implemented by using the remote controlled plane as well. The thing that i love about the hand-guided plane is that it makes the controlling easier and gets rid of the remote. So it kind of adds fun to the whole idea of remote controlled planes, and makes it more realistic.

It does seem the lock has some obvious security deficiencies. I'm curious to see how the Kickstarter campaign is moving along for this product concept.

Latest Analysis
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
