From how we buy mattresses to how tracking our sleep, technology has drastically changed how we think about sleep, as Tech Cocktail reports.
“Technology” may not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of sleep, but as you’ll soon see, it’s certainly becoming a factor. Between changing the way we buy mattresses to tracking our rest and even recording our sleep-talking, our sleep is quickly becoming high-tech.
There’s no doubt that a mattress is a significant purchase. People who don’t choose wisely will not only be out a lot of money, but also might have to suffer through fitful nights of sleep. As a result, many individuals nervously look for research before making a mattress purchase, and many turn to the Internet for help.
Michael Magnuson is the founder and CEO of a company called Revv Media, which is behind the GoodBed website. Think of it as TripAdvisor for beds. This website is a great tool for people to get mattress reviews before they head to the store or shop online. With more people trusting online reviews than ever before, this is a great way for mattress companies to use technology to show that people like their product.
