The Battle of Sleep Techs

According to Guy Shapiro, the chief executive officer of Consumer Technology Association which organizes CES, there’s tremendous growth in devices that aim to improve the quality of our sleep. And, smart beds are just one of the prime example.

Among the devices showcased at CES, one of the brands that stand out is Nightingale, a speaker that encapsulates the room to cancel out noises from other rooms or from outside. It also comes with Bluetooth chest sensor that vibrates to persuades the wearer to slow down his or her breathing.

Another crowd favorite is the Eight Smart Bed that comes with a smart cover and fits into the bed like a fitted sheet. This smart bed also enables the user to connect with Wifi, no need to charge at night or wear something around your wrist.
