Habitual snorers or people who sleep next to one can benefit from this special pillow that detects when a sleeper is snoring and gives them a gentle push to make them shift their sleeping position.
The Snore Activated Nudging Pillow is fitted with a microphone that can pick up the sonar vibrations associated with snoring. When it detects snoring, it automatically inflates an internal bladder that raises the depth of the pillow just ever so slightly to make the sleeper adjust their head or body position.
The sensitivity of the microphone can be adjusted for light and heavy snoring and can also be turned off. The contoured shape pillow has a 30-minute delay setting for the internal bladder to allow a sleeper to fall asleep without triggering inflation of the bladder. The pillow can also be manually inflated if needed.
The pillow sells for $149.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
