Just about anything in modern life is smart now, from rice cookers to doorbells, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that someone somewhere out there thought about a smart mattress.
The odd product called Smarttress is all thanks to the Spanish company Durmet, introducing a device that users can literally sleep on along with head-turning features, particularly the “Lover Detection System.”
Touted as “the first mattress that detects deception,” it’s fitted with 24 vibration sensors in the bed springs. That along with the Lover Detection System allow it to notify the user when there’s any suspicious activity happening on the ol’ bunk or perhaps when someone is jumping on it through an accompanying app on Android or iOS, which is coming soon.
As for the app used for the smart mattress, it features a speedometer, records the intensity and impact per minute, keeps track of the pressure points and takes note of the usage history.
Seems like a joke? Well, you’re not alone. A lot of people think this is the “most useless thing” ever made, but to everyone’s amazement, it’s real. To prove it, the folks over at Re/code got in touch with the makers via email, and a representative of the company replied with a clip of the mattress being tested out at a public event a week ago.
Apparently, this particular brand of peace of mind doesn’t come cheap, as the Smarttress has a hefty price tag of $1,750. It’s still in the works, but anyone who’s interested in getting ahold of one can place an order now.
Now, this isn’t the first product of Durmet, as the people behind it have been making various stuff for sleeping since 2012, and this seems to be the company’s attempt to foray into the smart world.
Personally, a camera seems like it’ll work better, but on that note, do crafty cheaters even “soil” where they eat nowadays?
Anyway, do you think the Smart mattress will fit well in the whole smart home deal? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
