Sleep Talk Recorder is looking for sleep talkers for a documentary
A year and a half ago, when I still had an iPhone as my phone, one of the most amusing apps I used on it was Sleep Talk Recorder. The app is active at night (with AC power connected), listens to you sleep, and records anything of significant volume – like when you sleep talk. The app caught me sleep talking quite a few times, and the most interesting part about it was that I seem to sleep talk in English. The problem with that is that I’m actually Norwegian, so English is not my first language.
I haven’t used the app in a while, but it’s still out there, and it’s very popular. Now the developer is doing a documentary about the people using the app, and wants people to send in their own sleep talk recordings via the app or the website. The idea is to make a documentary that shows off the users of the app and the interesting things they say in their sleep, which judging by my own experience, might end up making this as much of a comedy as a documentary. It’s a great idea, and of all the apps out there that could become actual documentaries, I think this is one of them.
To participate, you obviously need the app first and foremost. Even if you don’t want to become part of the documentary, the app itself is a lot of fun if you’re a sleep talker, and well worth the $1 download.
