Sense Sleep Monitor Tracks Sleep Behavior and Bedroom Environment

by

Hello Inc's new Kickstarter project Sense is an iOS-compatible sleep tracking system that allows users to monitor their sleep patterns and bedroom environments without the need for intrusive hardware.

The primary Sense device is a glow-in-the-dark polycarbonate orb that derives data from factors such as noise, light, temperature, humidity, and air particles to measure sleep quality. Sense also comes with the Sleep Pill, which is a small sensor that clips onto a pillow to track movement with a 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope.

Sense works with its own companion app for iOS to provide users a snapshot of their last night's sleep, offering an overall sleep score in addition a timeline of events throughout the night that triggered movement. The app can even play back noises that were captured by Sense, allowing users to listen to sound disturbances that may have led to an interruption in sleep.

The app also includes a Smart Alarm feature, which works with the Sense monitor and Sleep Pill to wake a user up at the right time. For instance, if a user begins to move more frequently after an extended period of rest, the app's Smart Alarm will sound off in sync with a sleep rhythm. Sense also includes a number of pre-made sounds and alarms to aide the sleeping experience.


The Sense sleep monitor and Sleep Pill can be preordered for a special price of $99 on Kickstarter, with regular pre-orders costing $129 afterward. The first Sense monitors and Sleep Pills are expected to begin shipping in November 2014.

Non-replacable battery in the sense pill? No thanks! I'm not buying an all new sense pill every year.

What works:


For some people, maybe, but not others. It is endlessly puzzling to me how so many people think they know the perfect solution to other people's medical problems.

The problem is waking up...

I generally don't have a problem going to sleep at night. It's waking up. My iPad 2 with an alarm app that sounds an air-raid siren that is very effective in waking me up. It's the same sound I used to hear to duck under my school desk every Friday morning when the civil defense siren went off for ten minutes during the 1970's. You never know when those damn Soviets might launch their nuclear arsenal at the U.S. during the Cold War.
