Users Can Listen To The ‘Soundtrack’ Of Their Sleeping Patterns

Users Can Listen To The ‘Soundtrack’ Of Their Sleeping Patterns

Computer scientists from the University of Helsinki in Finland have developed a sleep analysis software which translates data based on sleep patterns into a song by placing sensors underneath a participant’s mattress. The software measures body movement, heart rate, and breathing, compressing an entire night’s sleep into a few minutes of audio data.

Although the final output is interpretive, the project is interesting because it creates a novel way for us to experience sleep data and helps understand it in a new way.
