The Verge: Sleep Number’s latest upgrades to its 360 smart beds include built-in sensors and mobility accessories to create more accessible smart beds so that people can age more comfortably or recover from injuries.
“Smart furniture” is a new addition that surrounds the 360 smart bed. While it looks like one of those fancy headboards with built-in shelves, Sleep Number says it was built to support sleep health and make its beds more accessible. For example, the smart furniture includes mobility aids to help sleepers who may need extra help entering or exiting the bed.
It also features individual audio and noise reduction technology meant to block out environmental noise and has built-in reading lights, charging ports, and storage areas. Lastly, the furniture has ambient lighting designed to help maintain normal circadian rhythms — think amber-colored lighting at night and a dawn simulator in the morning.
