Matthew Kay, Eun Kyoung Choe, Jesse Shepherd, Benjamin Greenstein, Nathaniel F. Watson, Sunny Consolvo, Julie A. Kientz
Research has shown that environmental factors can be one of the major causes of poor sleep quality and inter-rupted sleep , which can contribute to daytime sleepiness and fatigue. In particular, a room that is too warm , has improper lighting , or is noisy  can have a negative impact on sleep. While some of these environmental factors are observable, others may be subtle. Individuals who have poor sleep quality can often have difficulty evaluating the cause or severity of their sleep difficulties . We present preliminary re-sults of an ongoing study of Lullaby, a capture and ac-cess system for the sleep environment, and discuss some aspects of designing capture and access for un-conscious experience.
