So we've developed The Nap Notebook!
Now, whenever you want to take a short nap in class, just lay your head on the Nap Notebook and it will automatically start recording your class for you! You'll be able to nap for as long as you want without missing a thing!
Check out the video to see it in action:
The following is just a short Instructable explaining how I made this simple device. You're results will vary based on your components, but the basic idea should be the same.
What you'll need:
1x Recording Device
1x Plastic Knife
1x Notebook Binder
Tape, and other bits...
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Setting Up the Recorder
The basic design is this:
The knife (or any long, thin piece of plastic or something similar...) is attached to the recording device and will be placed in the notebook in such a way that when you press down anywhere on the notebook, the recording device will be pushed down as well.
You may need to add a piece of plastic to the record button, so that when its pressed down it will start to record.
That's because it is! :)
Step 2: Placing the Modified Recorder Into the Notebook
I decided to put the recorder in the middle of the binder, so that the metal rings would protect it when you close it, I think that's the best option, but you can experiment with it.
So that's all there is to it!
Your notebook should now start recording as soon as you put your head down!
