Somnox has launched a sleep robot that is claims can make you sleep better. If it doesn’t, you can claim your money back after a 30-day trial.

The robot monitors your breathing, plays audio and gives you a good old hug to try and lull you to sleep. The pillow-shaped device helps you breathe more deeply, by pulsating in an effective breathing pattern, which is a simple way to help you get to sleep.

Its kidney-shaped design is perfect for cuddling, while the audio, such as a heartbeat, guided meditation or any other audio you can upload means you can fall into a deeper sleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling completely refreshed.

“Our mission is to help 100,000 people achieve a good night’s rest with the world’s best natural sleep solution by 2025,” the company explained on its Kickstarter page.

According to the company’s research, one in five people regularly suffer from sleep deprivation. We spend a third of our lives asleep and so it’s vital those moments are spent wisely, without distractions.

Somnox’s founders say they have first-hand experience of sleep deprivation and that’s what motivated them to develop the sleep robot. The company said it’ll provide regular updates over time, improving the product as time goes on and it learns more about its customers.

The company has already raised €105,193, which has surpassed its target of £88,862, with 280 people supporting the project. There’s only 24 days to go, so if you want to take advantage of buying the robot at the reduced price of €449, you have a limited time to do so.

“The last two years have been a crazy roller coaster ride for us, where we busted our butts every day to get to this point,” Somnox added.  “It’s awesome that we’ve received so much support from the community, the media, and even our inspiring production partner Royal Auping who believed in us when we where just four students chasing a dream.

“The encouragement of so many people makes us feel that we’re really on to something special here. We hope to make people all over the world aware that sleep medication doesn’t have to be the default solution for bad nights of sleep.”
