SLEEP­SENSE SAM­SUNG

Sam­sung is go­ing where it never has be­fore with this de­vice: into your bed. The Sleep­Sense is a cu­ri­ous de­vice that looks like a Sony Dis­c­man but prom­ises to mon­i­tor your vi­tal signs while you sleep, from pulse and res­pi­ra­tion rate, to the time it took you to fall asleep, how many times you woke, and how much rapid-eye move­ment sleep you en­joyed. Sleep­Sense sits un­der your mat­tress. It can also con­nect to other in­ter­net-savvy de­vices, such as air­con­di­tion­ers, tele­vi­sions and cof­fee ma­chines, to au­to­mate tasks such as turn­ing the screen off when you fall asleep in front of the TV.
