Smart technology is gradually permeating all the aspects of our lives. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, there were a number of companies who unveiled products for one domain of our lives that has not yet involved any use of smart technology, until now that is. Sleep gadgets were quite prevalent on the showroom floor, from pillowcases to smart beds and pajama belts.
One of the returning sleep gadgets from CES 2016 was the Sleep Number Bed, which introduced a number of sleep-tracking sensors inside its mattress. This year, the developer unveiled the Sleep Number 360 which improves on the previous device. It is able to adjust how firm the mattress is during the night as your turn around. Furthermore, it is even able to pre-heat its foot bed warmer before you go to sleep.
The bed can even raise the side of the bed on which a snorer sleeps and ending the noise. The bed will be available in the spring for the price of $1099.
Another one of the many sleep gadgets revealed this year is the 2breathe sleep tracker. It is a device that it is meant to be strapped around a person’s waist as they go to sleep.
