Want to sleep better? This robot can assist you
For all of us, sleep acts as a power source for handling day-to-day tasks, jobs.
It's something we all need, but the reality is, not everyone gets adequate sleep and at least one out of five suffers from sleep deprivation.
This is particularly why Netherlands-based Somnox has developed a 'sleep robot', a machine that could help you sleep longer/better.
Here's all about it.
Somnox sleep robot for faster, longer, natural sleep
First showcased at CES 2018, the Somnox sleep robot comes with a specific set of features to help you sleep naturally and wake up feeling refreshed.
The pillow-like robot soothes body and mind and reduces stress, thereby allowing the person holding it fall asleep faster and deeper.
As such, it can play a major role in helping you lead a productive life.
How this robot works
Somnox sleep robot provides better sleep with three different capabilities: breathing regulation, soothing sounds, and a touch of 'affection'.
As part of the first, the robot's sensors detect breathing and regulate it by generating a sensation of breathing on its own.
The breathing rhythm generated by the robot will basically let you relax and replicate that movement, subconsciously.
You get soothing sounds while sleeping
Along with soothing breathing rhythms, Somnox sleep robot also plays soothing music like lullabies and heartbeats to help you sleep.
The option can be customized by the companion app for the robot, and you can even upload your own music into the system.
Notably, scientists have long been recommending breathing and sounds as effective solutions to sleep better.
You can order Somnox sleep robot now
Somnox developed thousands of prototypes of its sleep robot but the final version is now ready to be shipped.
It has been priced at $599 - translating into Rs. 41,500 for Indians - and is available for purchase at purchase online at meetsomnox.com.
Those in the US can even visit b8ta stores to get the soft sleep robot.
Plus, the fabric is super soft
It is also worth noting that the fabric of the sleep robot is super soft, which means you won't feel any discomfort while snuggling with it subconsciously. The cover of the robot has been designed by Royal Auping, Europe's leading circular mattress manufacturer.
