Can the humble mattress get any better? It can and it has with the Eight Smart Mattress. With a radically different approach than traditional mattresses — which only focus on helping you get to sleep — this mattress actually helps you get out of bed by connecting with your gadgets and getting them up and running in time as soon as you’re ready to get out of bed. The Eight Smart Mattress uses IFTTT in order to seamlessly connect to and interact with your devices. It can also track your breathing rate and body movements to measure quality of sleep.
Eight’s mattress can also pair itself with a smartphone companion app that displays for you a comprehensive sleep report and even provides you with pointers on how to adjust for a better night’s rest, such as changing the mattress temperature (couples can set a preferred temperature on their side of the bed). If you’re still having a hard time falling asleep, the app will even play white noise for you. More below.
