A UK-based designer has invented the world’s first “smart bed” that can be controlled from an app and wake sleepers from nightmares.
The temperature of the bed, which is made up of small air balls covered by several layers of foam, can be controlled from an app on a phone.
By recording data such as the sleeper’s temperature, the bed can be set to wake the person up if it senses they are about to have a nightmare
Designer Joe Katan, from London, is hoping to crowd fund the product, which was inspired by his own bad sleeping habits.
He said: “We are trying to utilize modern design and technology to produce beds that you have full control of.
“You can customise it any way you wish.”
The interactive bed also has a “vibro massage” function and an anti-snoring system tuned to detect when breathing changes.
