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.

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.

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.

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.
