Sense reached its Kickstarter goal of $100,000 in just seven hours, becoming a new Kickstarter star on its way to almost $400,000 in pledges with 28 days left in its crowdfunding campaign. Developed by Hello, Sense is an advanced sleep-tracking gadget that aims to improve our time in bed.
“Sense lets you know how you are sleeping; what is affecting your sleep and how to correct the bad; what the ideal environment for you when sleeping is and how to achieve that; helps you to fall asleep soundly, as well as waking you up in the morning at the right point in your sleep cycle to avoid feeling terrible,” the company says.
The Sense system consists of a Sense ball-like device that sits on your nightstand, a Sleep Pill device that clips to the side of your pillowcase, and a mobile app that goes on your phone to show you all sorts of stats about your sleep and how to fix it.
Sense will measure noise, light, temperature, humidity and particles in the air, and will tell you whether it’s “safe” to sleep. The device will also score your sleep and help you understand why some nights were better than others. The device also comes with a Smart Alarm feature that can wake you up in a more efficient way than other alarms.
The cheapest Sense system is available on Kickstarter for $99, or $30 off the regular price, and is supposed to ship this November.
