This week's gadget from the GizWiz is The Spark. It's a watch that has a camera and it watches you to make sure you don't fall asleep while you're at work at school. Spark uses motion-tracking algorithms developed in conjunction with sleep researchers to analyze an individual’s motion patterns throughout the day. Using this data, the watch can detect when its user has fallen asleep at an inconvenient time. If it sees you nodding off, it vibrates to take you back up. The preorder price is $49, while retail will be $79. (As of 10/30/14, if you click the “order” button on the company website – link below, the $49 price was shown.) Created by a pair of teenagers so they wouldn't fall asleep in school.
