Inspired by years of biomedical research on the state of human sleep, San Francisco-based startup company Sheepdog Sciences has recently created a device that will help create and retain our long-term memories. The wristband can actually transfer facts into memory, all while you are sleeping!

The story behind this construction is based on the startup's own extensive research on the fact that long-term memories are formed and retained while an individual is unconscious or in a deep state of sleep.

To use the device, the wearer plays music as he or she is studying while the wristband monitors the heartbeat of the user, and when you go to bed, the device will play the same music to reactivate temporary, short-term memories and reminds the brain to form memory connections while you are in a state of unconsciousness. The device also comes with a smartphone app that can monitor your study habits and enhance your learning efficiency.
