Man, the Xbone really has some user unfriendly accessories.

Every year this tech gets trotted out under some new company name and every year it behaves about the same as it did the last:  Poorly at best.

Very cool concept but that's all it is still, a concept.  I wish them the best but its not ready yet, stick it back into the oven and try again next year I guess.

Anyone else notice that New South Wales (NSW) really needs another word inserted before the Wales?

Zapping your brain with electricity to play a game is a cool concept?

It's a transcranial direct current stimulation device.

I think $250 is a bit steep for a bit of molded plastic and a current limiting circuit. Also, I don't know if the contact points are in useful positions, or if you can do one side over the other.

Sadly, unless another solution is found, I might need something similar just to avoid falling asleep at work or while driving.

Since it started happening while driving, it took a bit for me to get so worried/scared/panicked that I was endangering myself and others, but now it seems that that response had made a difference, but only while driving.

I have sleep apnea, it's apparent even without formal diagnosis.  But I also wake up pretty much once an hour at night, sit straight up, and fall back to sleep while sitting up.  Something's terribly wrong, and I have stopped caring what it is, I just want it farking gone.  Until then, if it takes hooking up a car battery to my temples, so be it.

Sure, you can use their product to "overclock your brain" but what they don't tell you is that you'll also need to install an aftermarket cooler in the back of your head to prevent overheating.

Agreed.

I'd be open to getting one, with the caveat that it seems a little unduly expensive.

It also wouldn't hurt for studying - lots of good memory enhancement potential from tcds.

Stupid question, but have you tried sleep aids?

Melatonin does farkall for me, as does doxylamine and diphenhydramine.  My neurochemistry is all kinds of jacked up.  I've also tried ceasing my caffeine intake to no avail, as well.
 
2013-06-30 07:45:40 PM
no, i don't care about any of those things

also, if coffee doesn't do it, stop, seriously your fingers will thank you in the future when you're not all arthritic

My characters are doing quite fine without useless equipment, subby. I haven't had a PC die in 15 years - all the way back into 2nd edition.

My Pathfinder Society Wizard would like a stat widget to show up on a cert, though. I'm not down with burning all my prestige on items; I've got an honorary title to pick up before Lantern Lodge goes bye-bye.

Severe sleep deprivation caused by sleep apnea. Fix it, then see if there are other sleep disorders left over.
