In recent years, we’ve witnessed how our phones have become mobile, autonomous, and now smart, with other favourites, like our televisions, quick to follow. Meanwhile, this desire for multifunctionality has extended to the world of beds as designers and tech experts have focused on creating an intuitive place to rest our heads, where all our needs are catered for.
Forget any image you may have of Inspector Gadget-style devices, new generation smart beds are sleek and offer a multitude of functions to aid restful sleep. Via an app on our smartphone, they can monitor the quality and quantity of our sleep by recording and interpreting our body’s vital signs. They can also correct problems and enhance comfort by adapting to the weight, posture, body temperature, etc. of each user as they snooze.
Some brands have gone one step further and added comfort options like a foot-warming program, 3D Wave oscillating massage and unlimited adjustments, including zero gravity, anti-snoring, feet-up and reading positions. Your favourite settings can easily be saved as a personalised program. There are many designs to choose from, like cocoons and models with integrated entertainment and surround sound and TV screen or monitor for multiple streaming options…and this is just the beginning!
