We al­ready have ro­bots that cut the grass, do the vac­u­um­ing and or­der our gro­ceries. Now comes a bri­gade of bots to help us sleep. The most pop­u­lar of these is the Som­nox (€499/$763, som­nox.nl), a cud­dle­some sleep com­pan­ion that claims to help you sleep faster, for longer. How? By reg­u­lat­ing your breath­ing – the pil­low breathes, en­cour­ag­ing you to breathe at a re­laxed pace – and co­coon­ing you in sooth­ing sounds. With the global sleep aid mar­ket es­ti­mated to reach $76.7 bil­lion by 2019, other sleep ro­bots abound. The Sleep Num­ber 360 sleep­num­ber.com) smart bed is, in essence, a gi­ant sleep ro­bot, be­ing com­pletely geared to reg­u­late your body tem­per­a­ture, beat snor­ing by gen­tly turn­ing you over, and keeps you com­fort­able in the night.
