f.lux: software to make your life better
Software for red shifting computer interfaces at night to make it easier to transition to sleep. Apparently blue light tends to make us more alert (as a component of a full spectrum white light trying to emulate the sun), sun reducing the amount of blue, or the alternative being wearing blue filter sunglasses at night (which apparently is a thing and seems to also work if worn the hour before bed)

Like the fitbit, this does sleep tracking. Not wireless though, which has its merits/demerits...

Basically a water cooled sheet with an external heater/cooler that tries to keep a specific temperature (feedback loop), rather than a brute force electric blanket.

Fitbit
Good concept, but no mention of wireless bands in use (wifi interference? bluetooth being used?), and no local data dumps (all data must at least go through their server before it may be possible to scrape the data from the site). Which makes a bit of sense that the website is free (at the cost of giving statistical data to the company for later sales to marketing companies). Open format here with local dumps would have put them at risk of getting outpaced by a knockoff that is compatible.
