var tt_sections =... /* ]]> */ It’s no secret that the quality of our sleep has a direct impact on our daily lives. Days that are overpacked and/or demanding require more and better rest in order to do the same the next. But we tend to sacrifice sleeping hours in order to find the time to finish what needs to be done. But how about just getting some better sleep instead. The Chrona Sleep Elite transforms your normal pillow into a smart and slightly comfier one. Unlike most available products that simply track your sleep and tell you what you already know upon waking up – do we really need an app to tell us if we slept well or not. – Chrona helps to improve the quality of your nighttime rest. All of the tech and sensors are packed into a thin memory foam that slides into your pillowcase, on top of your pillow. As soon as you enter a deep sleep, Chrona plays low-frequency sounds to drive you into a deeper, more restful sleep.
Hardware . While the lower-tier Lumia 735/730 handsets stick to tried-and-true polycarbonate bodies, the Lumia 830 follows in the aluminum-ringed footsteps of the Icon and 930. A solid frame of metal surrounds the 830's squared-off body,... 5mm, it checks in at 2. 4mm taller, 0. 3mm narrower and 1. 3mm thinner than its higher-end predecessors. That metal frame is flanked on the front by a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3 that rises slightly above the aluminum body. Thankfully, the display gently tapers at the edges, making for a smooth transition from the glass to the thin metal along the bezels. The latter of which supports up to 128GB cards to supplement the 16GB of onboard memory. ) The backplate puffs out even further from the aluminum frame than the front display, creating a curved rear that makes the phone actually quite comfortable in my palm despite the flat-sided aluminum frame. As for ports and buttons, the Lumia 830 mostly sticks to the standard set seen on many a Lumia over the years. On the right edge, you'll find a volume rocker near the top, a power key in the middle and a dedicated camera key toward the bottom.
” It was a time-telling device that post-dates the flip-over numbers on little plastic cards, as in certain alarm clocks and radios, but was rendered obsolete by LEDs and LCDs. For 2015, that most insane of think tanks – Max Büsser’s appropriately-named M. A. D Gallery – has turned to Nixie tubes to create what surely must be the most fascinating table clock you could hope to acquire. Back in the 1950s, Nixie tubes – technically “cold cathode displays” – were an electronic means of showing numerals, for counters and computers as well as clocks, with reasonably high visibility and the accuracy afforded by electronics. A Nixie tube, the name believed to be short for “Numeric Indicator eXperimental No. 1”, uses a neon-based gas in a glass cylinder identical in size and concept to the valves in hi-fi equipment, early radar and other pre-transistor devices. Inside each Nixie are layered wire-mesh anodes and cathodes shaped like numerals, one wire frame each for 0 to 9. When power is applied, the relevant wire glows, controlled by electronic circuitry to a row of typically six tubes, as a single Nixie... Nixie Machine, designed by Frank Buchwald for M. A. D Gallery, is one of the most arresting applications of late for this delightful, past-its-sell-by-date treasure – but not the only one.
