Music-Streaming Pillow With Activity Tracker
Meet Zeeq, the pillow that can stream music from its interior low enough for you to hear without waking anyone else up. It uses eight wireless speakers to play music from iTunes, Spotify or the included “sleep tracks,” which you can control from the companion app.
You can also track and optimize your sleep patterns. This usually entails correlating your sleep with REM cycles to wake you up at a point when you’re not going to be as sleepy upon waking up.
The creator explained that the idea came from his own sleep troubles. He wanted to play music, but didn’t want to disturb his wife, so he shoved a pair of wireless headphones into a pillow.
“To my surprise, I was able to hear the music, but my wife wasn’t,” Cofounder Warrick Bell said. “I knew I was onto something.”
Zeeq, which has so far raised more than $220,000 on Kickstarter, can also subtly vibrate when you snore, ideally so that you’ll wake up and adjust your position.
Kickstarter pricing is $149 for the pillow and $199 for the Zeeq and an activity tracker.
