It's dark. You can't find the thing you need. You need a Night Coaster.
This is a nice and simple gadget, and I like nice and simple gadgets.
The problem: You wake in the night and you need to take some medication / answer your mobile / put your glasses on – but it is too dark.

Wake up at the perfect time with the Sleeptracker Pro watch
The Sleeptracker Pro is more than just a wristwatch. It’s a personal sleep monitor and an alarm which wakes you when your sleep pattern is closest to an “almost awake” moment. The desired result of this is that you wake up refreshed, rather than groggy. That’s the theory, anyway.
It’s supposed to be the first watch which can upload 12 hours of sleep data, via USB, to a PC, letting you take a look at your personal sleeping habits.
When coupled with the ability to manually add factors which may promote more restful, or cause more restless, sleep, it offers a useful sleep diary, alerting users to what may help them to get a better night’s sleep.
