In addition, mice that exercise have better spatial learning and memory than sedentary mice. For the new study, researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign wondered whether there was a correlation between physical fitness and learning.

Half of the children in the study ranked in the top 30% of fitness (as measured by a treadmill test) for kids their age and gender; the other half ranked in the bottom 30%. Other than that, the kids in both groups were basically the same in terms of socioeconomic status, ADHD symptoms and scores on an intelligence test. In both groups, about half were boys and half were girls. The children spent one day using iPads to learn the geography of the fictitious maps. <br>Source:,0,6326552.story

These orphans typically have one parent that is living, but the families can`t afford to take care of the children. Modu decided to donate t an orphanage that was an hour and a half from where he grew up, located in the city of Dakar. <br>Source:

That doesn't necessarily mean an app couldn't be written that allows the iPhone 5S to function in this way. Of course you would have to strap the phone to your person before climbing into bed, something I don't see many people doing. I feel smaller wrist-style products are better suited to this purpose.
