‘sense’ by san fransisco-based studio Hello is a smart alarm and tracking system that monitors your sleep behavior and the environment of your bedroom. accompanied by an intuitive smartphone app, ‘sense’, is the first intelligent device that 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. ‘sense uses technology so we can take back our sleep. without imposing itself. without intrusion,’ says founder james proud. ‘everything with sense is designed to fade away and work in the background, letting you just sleep.’

the device is meant to sit on your nightstand monitoring the conditions in your bedroom and disturbances at night, and comes included with ‘sleep pill’, a small sensitive sleep tracking sensor that clips invisibly to your pillow. hidden inside, is a 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope, capable of picking up the tiniest of your movements throughout the night. this is all then sent wirelessly via bluetooth low energy and ANT to sense and the smartphone app in the background.

 

‘the app tells you how well you slept, or didn’t, by giving you a unique sleep score each night,’ he adds. ‘you can begin to correlate interruptions in your sleep to external conditions and disturbances. you can play back key sound disturbances via the app to say ‘ah, the garbage truck broke my sleep cycle at 3am. I didn’t even realize that.’

sense also contains a speaker, so it can play white noise, or similar sounds such as pink noise or calming rain. the speaker is also used to play sense’s smart alarm, which wakes you up at the right point in your sleep cycle. the system comes equipped with ambient light, particulate, temperature and humidity sensors that learn to understand in which conditions you sleep best. to learn more about ‘sense’, see the kickstarter campaign here.
