Our beds are something we fantasize about being in during a long stressful day or when we’re not feeling well. They are often taken for granted because they are always there for us but yet we haven’t made any improvements to them so that they may integrate into our new fancy smart homes. Sure, there have been wearables that track sleep but they only integrate with our phones and nothing else.
Enter the Luna, a complete sleep monitoring system that not only monitors sleep patterns but talks to the rest of our devices to make our homes more conducive to sleeping.
Luna is essentially a mattress cover that consists of multiple layers including a sensor layer and a temperature control layer. When Luna is connected to your smartphone it auto-learns your bedtime schedule and creates a personalized temperature schedule so that your bed is more comfortable to get into.
When you’re finally asleep, Luna monitors the quality of sleep you’re having through sleep phases, heart rate and breathing rate. It will then use that data to give you recommendations to improve your sleep. Luna also communicates with other devices such as lights, door locks and Nest’s to make sure your house is secure and comfortable. When it’s time to wake up, Luna monitors when you’re at your lightest sleep and sounds an alarm to reduce grogginess.
One of the most surprising things Luna has going for it is that Mark Cuban, a notoriously picky shark from the Shark Tank has said that it’s “the one technology that might finally make our bedrooms smart”. That’s high praise coming from Mr. Cuban and thus warrants a mention here on The Connected Planet.
