"Sense" is a system that helps improve sleep quality. In addition to the spherical body, it consists of a small "Sleep Pill" that attaches to the pillow and a smartphone app.
The main body of "Sense" has sensors that detect the brightness, temperature and humidity of the room, and the noise level, etc., and keeps a record of the bedroom environment.
The "Sleep Pill" attached to the pillow is responsible for collecting user information. It monitors the time when the user fell asleep, the time when he / she entered REM sleep / non-REM sleep, the time zone when he / she was sick, and the time when he / she woke up, and sent it to the main body "Sense".
The smartphone app checks and quantifies the nightly sleep quality of the user based on this information. By looking at the scores recorded daily, users can recognize their sleeping environment and understand how to change it to improve their sleep quality.
The smartphone app can also display the user's nightly "sleep cycle." By checking this sleep cycle, the user can grasp when he / she goes into deep sleep (non-REM sleep) and then in how many hours he / she shifts to light sleep (REM sleep). This makes it possible to determine when to set the alarm clock to wake up comfortably. The app also has an alarm clock function, so you can set an alarm at the most comfortable time to wake up.
Once on the market, the price will be $ 129. A separate shipping fee of $ 15 to Japan will be required.
