Some of my friends who practise mindfulness meditation use an alarm device that vibrate every 2 minutes and he will become mindful then. Danny O'Brien of Life Hacks fame asked me about this too. So, here's a short example (without parameter setting GUI) that does exactly this. You need to have miso library install. Only Series 60 2nd Ed FP2 device (Nokia 6630, Nokia 6680) can be used. See vibrate(...) in miso documentation http://pdis.hiit.fi/pdis/download/miso/miso-1.40-api.html
import appuifw, miso, e32 # run-and-break type of app running = 1 def set_exit(): global running running = 0 appuifw.app.exit_key_handler= set_exit # main loop while running: miso.vibrate(500, 100) # vibrate for 500 millisec, at full speed e32.ao_sleep(10) # vibrate every 10 secondsI don't have a FP2 phone to test this. Though the code is pretty straight forward, please report if there is a problem.
