    This could help you take a quick nap... quickly. The machine helps you fall asleep straight into the deepest level of sleep. Theoretically, it could reduce an entire night's sleep into just a few hours! :eyepop: And it can be very helpful for people who have trouble sleeping at night.

    That sounds useful for car trips and stressful nights.

    Probably if it malfunctions. Also since it is magnetic, too many doses of it could damage you.

    Yeah, I heard someone say he'd never use it because of fears that it could have horrible side effects. Someone else said that it was useless cause it doesn't induce REM sleep.... but it should, since REM is during the deepest level of sleep, which is exactly what this machine causes.
    I think there will be safety mechanisms built into this thing so people don't harm themselves. And hopefully there are no bad long-term effects. But they're doing more testing... it won't be available anytime very soon, at least that's what I think.

    I wonder if they could make this into a pill, or at least something for home consumers.

    Well, there are prescription sleeping pills... but that's different.
    I think if this works out well they'll start selling them to the public. But they probably have more testing to do first.
