Everyone loves sleep. It’s not something we can function without. For many of us, it’s probably even a hobby. Waking up in the morning should be something that is handled with care so we can make it through the day. Without even realizing it, most of us sabotage ourselves by forcing our bodies to wake up unnaturally with our abrupt alarm systems.
The Sunrise Smart Pillow does a few things to solve this issue. First and foremost, it wakes you up using natural light, hence the product name. These lights are embedded safely inside the pillow on the left and right side. As a bonus, this smart pillow will even play nature sounds or your favorite music to rouse you out of bed.
Why not start improving your morning wake-up when you go to bed the night before? This pillow is made of high grade materials to maximize comfort, cooling, and airflow. The built-in light strips not only wake you up naturally in the morning, but also provides as the perfect reading light.
Smart features are controlled by an iOS or Android app. The Sunrise Pillow detects your sleep cycle and knows to begin the wake-up process when you’re sleeping lightly. Your desired music track will gradually increase to ensure that you are awake, completing the best wake-up experience. Also included is the functionality to monitor your slumber with a sleep score, providing you a better understanding of your sleep trends.
Not only can this pillow wake you up with special music, but it can also put you to sleep with its Deep Sleep mode. Whether it’s playing music or an audiobook, the pillow will turn off audio when it notices that you’ve fallen asleep.
A hidden storage pocket reveals a wired remote control, which provides an alternative way to control your smart pillow. The remote has a power button, a snooze button, volume buttons, and a button for the reading lights. Recharging your pillow can be done via a Micro USB port located on the remote control.
Hardware-wise, there are some invisible components that are nested deeply beneath the layers of premium memory foam. A gyroscope and accelerometer detect movement with precision, and RGB LEDs simulate the natural sunrise which wakes you up. The microphone analyzes breathing patterns and detects noise disturbances through the night. Bluetooth is included to configure your pillow features via your smartphone. All components are stored in a waterproof enclosure for safety.
Currently, you can pre-order a Sunrise Pillow for $99, with an estimated delivery date of August 2017.
