Somnium Mattress

This is being branded as the “fitness equipment” at night and is designed for athletes and invidiuals who are active in their lifestyle. The mattress is aligned perfectly, so that sleep and movement is comfortable when someone is laying down on it.

Inside the foundation are springs that Somnium says encourages spooning. The spring support isn’t made of metal, which makes movement less disturbing, especially if you’re sleeping with another person in bed.

SMS Pillow by Philips

Sometime seven or eight years ago, Philips Research created a prototype that infuses sleep technology with mobile technology and called it the SMS Pillow. This prototype was show in a Berlin exhibit held in 2005.

What the pillow does is to send text message using the pillow itself, as it comes with LED embedding in the fabric, with the application just underneath it. It’s the fabric itself that actually does the trick but since I don’t see similar products anywhere, it’s safe to say that this idea never took flight, isn’t it?
