Clock Boy was a phony sparkly. This is what a real Inventor looks like.


MyBivy 101 

As of 2015, 3.6 million United States military veterans have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) diagnoses following exposure to traumatic and life-threatening events during deployment.  One major symptom of PTSD is 'night terrors' - a visceral nighttime experience in which a person gets little or poor sleep due to recurring troublesome thoughts or emotional triggers.  (Click here to learn more about night terrors)

To help veterans sleep better at night, my team and I have developed myBivy, an application for smartphone and smartwatch that tracks a veteran's heartbeat and movements in order to track night terrors and actually prevent them over time. Post-sleep, the veteran can see how they slept the previous night, while also having the option to submit a statistical report to their VA doctor or clinician. 

When myBivy is completed, we'll have the sensor running on Apple, Android, and Pebble watches. The patient-interface will run on Android and iPhone. It currently runs exclusively on Pebble, but we want it to run on every type of watch.


This kid is going places.

One of those places is not the White House.

Mark it.
