The Somnox Sleep Robot claims to be the solution to sleep-related problems, without medication, Business Insider reports.
Norwegian company Somnox says its on a mission to “Bring the world better sleep, naturally.”
The company was started in 2017, born out of the engineer founder Julian Jagtenberg’s desire to help his mother sleep. Jagtenberg says that he talked to sleep scientists and consulted studies. The first prototype was too big and too loud, but eventually he arrived at the current version of the sleep robot, inspired by meditation, mindfulness, and the way that sleeping babies pick up on their parents’ breathing.
