Sleep disorders are common and affect sleep quality and quantity. There are many apps and devices you can try to sleep better, yet we see new solutions popping up all the time. Whether existing products and services don’t work, or people like to experiment with new gadgets – this is a growing industry that doesn’t seem to “rest.”
The Sense is a new entrant to this space, coming from a San Francisco-based Hello. With the ability to track one’s sleep behavior, monitor the environment of a bedroom and reinvent the alarm – the company has launched a Kickstarter campaign that is killing it as we speak. At the moment I’m writing this, Sense has managed to attract almost million dollars, blasting pass its $100,000 initial goal.
The system consists of the Sense ball that monitors the conditions in bedroom and disturbances at night; the Sleep Pill tracking sensor that clips to a pillow; and a mobile app that brings it all together.The system consists of the Sense ball that sits on a nightstand to monitor the conditions in bedroom and disturbances at night; the Sleep Pill sleep tracking sensor that clips invisibly to a pillow; and a mobile app that brings it all together.
The ball has Ambient Light, Temperature and Humidity, and Particulate Sensor which will monitor the conditions in the bedroom, and suggest changes via mobile app. Sleep Pill, on the other hand, is incredibly sensitive to moves, adding its calculations to the final Sleep Score number, which is presented to you after waking up.
Speaking of which [waking up], the system also includes the Smart Alarm feature, that will use the data gathered by the Sense ball and Sleep Pill to make sure you’re refreshed for the day ahead.
A single Sense package could be yours for $99, while version with two Sleep Pills goes for $30 more. Sounds like something most of us could use; check it out.
