Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Las Vegas and Sleep Tech

***We've all been thinking about the city of Las Vegas this week, but Rick happened to be there the last few days working on some sports tech and travel stories.

What was the vibe?

 

We are also talking sleep this week and for many Las Vegas and sleep don't mix, but Rick ties them together this week in this segment..

New sleep technology:



1.  BedJet

The world’s first rapid cooling, warming and climate control system made just for your bed. BedJet helps you sleep cooler, dryer and better, and solves the age-old problem of couples disagreeing on comfortable sleep temperature. The BedJet is a solution for:
Naturally hot sleepers or anyone who needs relief from night sweats or hot flashes

Partners who have different sleep temperature preferences - the BedJet Dual Zone configuration creates two independent zones for cooling/heating on either side of the bed

Athletes who need deeper, better sleep for recovery after intensive training

Powered ventilation cooling instantly wicks body heat and moisture out of the bed for awesome cooling relief, great solution for hot sleepers, hot-flashes. Special night sweat management mode is proven to remove body moisture from the bed to keep you dry and comfortable.
Heating mode gives an enveloping dry sauna like warmth in just seconds, great therapy for cold feet and cold legs, safer alternative to electric blankets and warms bed 15x faster with air

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Hurricanes and High Tech Food

How healthy do you eat?

Rick steps up to the plate this week, with some healthy food and some app tips for following and preparing for the hurricane season...

Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma.  It looks like a busy hurricane season

Rick has two apps here to make sure you are ready.... have a listen:



1. Hurricane by American Red Cross
 
This award-winning, free iOS and Android app not only tracks and forecasts the hurricanes, it also explains how to make and execute an emergency plan and how to use social media, text, or email to tell others you’re safe during and after a storm.



2. NOAA SuperRes Radar US by Shuksan Software

This iOS app is aimed at weather enthusiasts and boasts high resolution graphics four times more detailed than other apps as well as full text warnings from the National Weather Service.
Multiple map styles and different view options make this app a good one for serious trackers.
This third-party app is not an official platform of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or the National Weather Service.
As with any app that relies on mapping software, these hurricane trackers should be used sparingly as maps can drain battery power quickly, which could be catastrophic in an emergency situation. Turn off when not in use.
In addition to SuperRes Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to 3 km hourly forecast radar and the following features:
- 3 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models
- Temperature overlay
- Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer)
- 7 day forecasts and current conditions -- just press and hold for a second on the radar map.
- Severe weather (flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm) warnings. Tap on a warning box to display the full warning message from the National Weather Service. Note: these are *not* push alerts. The app must be open to view the warnings.
- Cloud cover and satellite imagery for the continental United States
- Advanced radar layers (echo tops, composite reflectivity, and storm total precipitation).
- Play, pause, and step animations
- Fast zoom in and zoom out
- Choice of radar palettes
