Sense: Know More. Sleep Better.

Sense: Know More. Sleep Better. | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

Sense is a simple system that tracks your sleep behavior, monitors the environment of your bedroom and reinvents the alarm. 

Sense combines the insight of your sleep patterns with the data of the environment in your bedroom, including noise, light, temperature, humidity and particles in the air.

With Sense's Smart Alarm, it can even wake you up in the morning at the right point in your sleep cycle, to avoid that groggy feeling we all hate so much.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

My Sense has finally arrived ! (with the now usual 9 months Kickstarter delay) - Remember that they raised $2.4 M against a $100k target...

 

While the unboxing experience was made slightly complicated by how tight the additional sleep pill box was closed, the overall setup is a pure bliss and the product finish is amazing. Sense may be paired with several "sleep pills" that you clip on the pillow and allow to monitor your sleep as well as your spouse's without interferences other than snoring :-)

 

(The remarkable and fluid phone UI has 2 slight glitches

1/ when setting the alarm tone, it doesn't play in on the Sense (just on your phone) hence making you to guess whether the Sense has or not sound capabilities
2/ in Europe, would have appreciated a temperature in degrees Celsius not Fahrenheit)

Kolibree: The World's First Connected Electric Toothbrush

Why Does A Connected Toothbrush Matter?

Today, we brush our teeth without knowing how well we're brushing. Are we reaching all the zones in our mouth? Are we brushing long enough? While we might get feedback from our dentist during our once or twice a year visits, how do we know whether we’re brushing correctly the rest of the time?

Kolibree has combined the most advanced sensor technology which DETECTS WHERE YOU'VE BRUSHED AND WHETHER YOU'RE MISSING IMPORTANT PARTS OF YOUR MOUTH - with fun games to keep adults and kids motivated to brush properly.

The result? Important usage data means that you have the FEEDBACK to brush better, spending less money on expensive but avoidable dental procedures.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Kolibree, a very smart investment to avoid future dentist expenses. Just pledged for mine, hurry up, demand is stacking fast.
