Samsung Power Sleep
It began with the University of Vienna’s research in fighting diseases such as cancer and Alzheimers. Through a partnership with Samsung and with a connection to the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC), the goal was to design a powerful mobile app with enough processing power to perform scientific research while patients or users sleep. We developed the simple to use Webby award-winning Power Sleep app. When set with an alarm, the app synchs with the university’s Similarity Matrix of Proteins (SIMAP) database. Researcher can now decipher protein sequences to further medical advancements in the areas genetics and heredity, biochemistry, molecular biology, and cancer research. Power Sleep allows users “to become part of the project and, at the same time, to do good in their sleep.” - all with a simple to use mobile app developed by PocketScience.
