This is how I go to bed to monitor my sleep (with a simple dry electro-encephalogram that monitors my brain waves) and with a 3D accelerometer (which measures my movement and activity). I use these tools to track my sleep in my polyphasic sleeping experiment (more on that here, http://six40winks.com/ )
Sunrise in the early morning at Cowes, Isle of Wight, while I work on my computer. I'm seeing more of these now that I follow a polyphasic sleeping schedule (to know what it is visit http://six40winks.com/about ).

During the next 6 months I will slowly adapt to a polyphasic sleeping schedule. The end goal is to sleep 2h/day for 6 months. I would like to track my movement, activity, sleep cycles and brain waves during this period and share this data with the world. However I'm currently unemployed (working on a startup) and so have no income. Therefore I would like to fund-raise to buy the tools to track my sleep.
UPDATE: the fundraising was successful on Rocket Hub: http://rkthb.co/5692

One of the reasons my polyphasic sleeping blog (http://six40winks.com) is not updated faster is the manual processing of the data. When I record the brain waves with the Zeo monitoring device, I then need to upload pictures of each nap, download them, and then combine them in an image to make the day easier to grasp for the readers. This is a snapshot of the editing I have to do for everyday. As soon as I get a change I'm going to try to update this programmatically. Do any of the readers know about android apps?
It's the missing step for me to start processing the data ( http://six40winks.com/2012/04/05/day-2829-zeo-mobile-programming/ )
