For those who have trouble sleeping, technology company Philips have created a potential solution in the form of a headband called SmartSleep, displayed last week at CES. The headband’s sensors rest on the wearer’s forehead to detect brain activity.

When the wearer falls into the sleeping pattern known as deep sleep, the device starts up and begins to play a repeating pattern of soft white noise. The sound pattern was carefully chosen to ensure the wearer does not awaken from the sudden noises. The sound should help the user remain asleep and form healthy sleeping habits.

Philips plans to release the SmartSleep headband this spring for $400.
