Cute Robotic Pillow helps to fix snoring and possibly OSA too
At the first sight this looks like nothing more than a huge snuggly bear but in reality that it does way more than just cuddling up. This is actually a Robot Pillow from the wonder land of Japan which promises to bring a gentle solution for snoring and possible for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) as well. It looks like a sleeping polar bear which will gently tickle your face when your snoring gets too loud. It has built-in microphones which can measure your snoring volume.
Apart from this, the fingers of the person sleeping on the pillow will be connected to a saturation meter. Thus the pillow will use the snoring volume and the saturation level as input to correct your sleeping behavior by tickling your face. Check out the video below to see how it achieves its aim to get the the person to move the position of the head. Pretty neat, huh?!
