A peanut-shaped robot pillow designed to slow down your breathing so you can fall into a deep sleep has been developed by a group of four Dutch students from Delft University of Technology.
The robot pillow called Somnox measures your rate of breathing and then creates its own steady breathing rhythm in response. This helps you relax and drift off into a peaceful night’s sleep.
The device uses artificial intelligence algorithm that creates individualised treatment providing a breathing simulation based on the person’s own breathing behaviour during the night.
The group, which is composed of industrial designer Julian Jagtenberg, software engineer Job Engel, mechanical engineer Stijn Antonisse, electrical and software engineer Wouter Kooyman van Guldener, said: 'Sleep experts, called somnologists, have helped to develop Somnox.'
'Multiple studies have shown that breathing is one of the most important factors of a good night of sleep.'
'A slow breathing rhythm can induce a person to sleep in minutes; your heart rate decreases and you’ll become relaxed in minimal time.'
