Luna is the name of a brand new crowd-funding project that has taken Indiegogo by storm, as it promises to revolutionize sleep and bring it to the Internet-of-Things future. The device is a mattress cover packed with sensors that monitors your sleep patterns and talks to a variety of connected devices, such as smart coffee machines, which it can instruct to automatically make a fresh pot as you wake up each morning.
But Luna is a lot smarter than simply being able to make coffee for you — and yes, unfortunately, you’ll still have to make sure there’s fresh coffee in the machine and water before you go to sleep.
The mattress cover registers your sleep patterns and can be used to automatically adjust its temperature. Luna analyzes your sleep cycle, heart rate and breathing rate to further improve your sleeping experience. The device can also connect to your smartphone to set up alarms, and to find out more details about your daily health-related activities, including exercise and eating habits.
Luna will also be able to connect to other Internet-connected devices in the house of the future, including smart locks and smart light switches, and make sure the door is locked and all lights are turned off as you get ready for sleep.
The mattress cover comes in different sizes and can be washed in a washing machine just like any regular cover, even though it packs plenty of sensors.
The Luna is available for pre-order at $199 (prices varies depending on size) which is at least $50 less than the future retail price, and should be delivered to backers starting in August. With an initial goal of $100,000 the project has already been funded, as more than 1,800 backers already pledged more than $390,000 so far — the funding round ends on February 26.
