Sony is proposing a high-tech pillow that could help users to wake up feeling more refreshed. The bedding textile is embedded with a small actigraph unit that can monitor the sleep patterns of the user. Actigraphy is a non-invasive method that is able to continually record movements and detect if the user is in REM sleep or awake.

Sony’s pillow will allow users to set the alarm and be gently woken up at an optimal time. Traditional alarm clocks sometimes wake the person up when they’re in deep sleep, which results in them getting up feeling groggy and tired. The patented pillow is able to track brainwaves and ensures that the person is being woken up when they leave REM sleep.
