Seven Amazing Bedroom Technology Innovations Available Right Now
1. Digital Sleep Trackers
Digital sleep trackers such as the FitBit and other devices help people track their sleep patterns and even the quality of their sleep. By monitoring the time and efficiency of sleep, users can work to change sleep patterns and address sleep problems. The devices can even help uncover sleep disorders and other health problems that might be affecting your health and your sleep.
2. Touch Sensitive Night Lights
The Senzo Nightlight solves the annoying bedroom problem of not being able to find the light switch in the dark. The Senzo lights up the room just through touch, so when you are groping around in the dark you have a decent chance of creating light. This would also be a great sleep technology to install in a child's room.
3. Interactive Alarm Clocks
The iQ alarm clock makes you really wake up by administering a quiz first thing in the morning. Instead of letting you hit the snooze button, the clock makes you answer questions in order to stop its noise.
4. Temperature Sensitive Bedding
Temperature regulating pillows and quilts using TempraKon technology are on the market thanks to Quilts of Denmark. Originally a home insulation material, TempraKon consists of microscopic wax-filled spheres. The spheres help the down-filled quilts absorb and wick away heat and moisture. The wax releases the heat when temperatures drop, keeping your comfortable effortlessly.
5. Speaker Pillows
Speaker pillows, such as Sound Oasis Sleep Therapy, use ultrathin hi-fi speakers to provide soft music or white noise while you sleep. They dock with iPods, MP3 players, CD players and white noise machines. The pillows use hypoallergenic poly-fiberfill. The speakers are removable when you need to wash the pillows.
The Paciugo Italian Contemporary bed produced by Bolzan Beds features a bendy headboard. Split into halves on larger beds, the headboard bends over to create a sloped backrest for reading or watching TV. Partners in bed can adjust their headboard individually.
7. Bed Within A Bed
Another sleep technology bed is essentially a bedroom within a bedroom. The Insomnia Cure Bed “Once Upon a Dream” was created by Mathieu Lehanneur. Currently available only in the Hôtel du Marc in Reims, France, the bed features everything from automatically closing curtains to automatically adjusted temperature and lighting. It even has a built in white noise generator to block out external sounds.
