Awareness

Awareness | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Awareness is a ‘personal assistant’ that helps both practitioners and their learners to be aware of the time they spent on the computer.
Are we all aware that...
   - computers, smartphones and tablets now play an essential part in our daily lives;
   - watching a screen for long hours, we might suffer some ill effects such as eye-strain, blur vision and headache and
   - over-staring at a screen can even cause users to experience sleep disorders?
By using Awareness, an on-line app that can help reduce digital eye fatigue and strain, every continuous hour practitioners and their learners spent on computer, will trigger the software to play a Tibetan singing bowl.
In addition to that, Awareness will also show the amount of time being spent on the computer, without a break, in the menu bar.
Note: the software will never force users to stop using the computer.
Awareness is available for both Windows and OS X
