Crapgadget or not, this little doohicky is coming. Looking like a crystal ball being strangled by rubber bands, it serves as a bedside sleep companion (that sounded wrong) that monitors not only your sleeping habits, but also environmental conditions. It comes with a “Sleep Pill” that clips to your pillow, which tracks your tosses and turns, automatically transmitting data to Sense via Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT.
And where does it all go? Why, it gets relayed and converted into a sleep number to let you know how well (or how bad) you’ve slept, through the system’s iPhone or Android app. Information regarding your movement, air conditions and even REM sleep analysis are part of the package. For $99 one can be yours, but fair warning – that pudgy kid of a CEO isn’t exactly confidence inspiring in the video.
Do we need such a thing?
