If Jaime Sommers is wrong when she says that the cause of insomnia is because we don’t have a Sleep Number bed, at least we can now find out more scientifically. The Zeo Personal Sleep Coach alarm clock includes a wireless headband that reads your brainwaves and transmits the data to the clock’s SD card. When you get up, transfer the info to your PC, upload results to Zeo online and they will suggest what you can do to get a decent night’s sleep. At a cost of $400.00, they had better not tell you to drink a glass of warm milk or take a hot bath.

At a total size of 2.7MB, Ugobe says it will take longer than most downloads, but then maybe Pleo doesn’t like holidays.
