Wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed with the A.I.-powered Bryte Bed

Smarter sleep leads to deeper sleep. That’s the premise behind the artificial intelligence-powered Bryte Bed, a smart bed that learns the habits of its occupants and makes adjustments to optimize sleep patterns. One of the newest smart beds to enter the market, the Bryte Bed is now shipping after four months of pre-orders.

The Bryte Bed uses a vast array of sensors to measure the occupants’ weight distribution, pressure points, body temperature, and overall sleep quality. The Bryte Bed is composed of 16 different zones and that can be adjusted via a pneumatic system. This system operates constantly throughout the night, making minor adjustments to keep the user comfortable without waking them. And though it goes without saying, the pneumatic adjustments are almost silent.

Dual-side functionality means the Bryte works for both single occupants and couples. The A.I. is able to differentiate between each occupant and make small adjustments to ensure both people get the best sleep possible. Maybe this means the Bryte will finally solve the problem of trapped arms with cuddling couples?

The Aiden Sleep Service is the brains behind the bed. Bryte calls the service your “personal sleep expert.” The Aiden Sleep Service processes the input data from the sensors throughout the bed to learn how each individual user sleeps and help them reach deeper levels of sleep — and to stay asleep longer. The system even learns your normal sleep and wake-up times and begins to prepare the bed in advance. This sort of machine learning means that the longer the bed is used, the more effective it becomes.

Even if someone’s sleep patterns change over time (or on a nightly basis), the bed can make instant adjustments to compensate. Intensive research went into the development of the bed to make it as effective as possible. The bed also connects with other smart home tech to control the entire sleep experience. The system will slowly raise the lights and increase the temperature to help users wake up, or dims the lights and warms the sheets to prepare for sleep. The behavior of the bed depends on the user’s individual preferences, but any data it collects remains completely anonymous. Only subsets of data are gathered and aggregated by Bryte to help make future improvements to the bed.

The Bryte starts at $5,950 and comes with delivery and installation, as well as a 365-night trial period. The main storefront can be found in Seattle, but pop-up stores will appear in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles in the months to come.

The j7+ is iRobot’s first two-in-one vacuum and mop combo
The Roomba Combo j7+ mopping wood floors.

Robot vacuums have quickly become a key part of a connected smart home, and iRobot is giving customers a new, premium option with the Roomba Combo j7+ -- a robot vacuum that can both mop and vacuum without any additional user input, thanks to a retractable mophead that stows away when moving from hardwood to carpet.

This retractable mophead is what sets the j7+ apart from the competition. Most premium robot vacuums feature both mopping and vacuuming capabilities but require the user to swap out the mophead before letting it roll onto the carpet. With the Roomba Combo j7+, that’s all been automated. Not only can iRobot’s new product detect what type of surface it’s on but it can also raise its mop pad in the air to avoid saturating your carpet.

Why Amazon acquiring iRobot will make Roombas even better
The iRobot app overlaid on a Roomba.

You've probably seen the news by now that Amazon has signed an agreement to buy iRobot for $1.7 billion. There have been a lot of mixed reactions to the news, but it's important to understand exactly what the agreement means.

First of all, the deal isn't complete. As of now, iRobot is still an independent company -- only the groundwork has been laid. While it's highly unlikely that it will fall through, nothing is set in stone yet. According to Amazon's own press release, "Completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by iRobot's shareholders."

5 reasons I still use the Echo Show 15 everyday
Amazon Echo Show 15 hanging horizontally on the wall in a kitchen.

The Echo Show 15 first released in December 2021. Much of the initial conversation around the smart display was that it was a large novelty -- a huge display that didn't have the same functionality as the Echo Show 10. It released in the midst of the work-from-home surge, and without video conferencing capabilities, the Echo Show 15 just didn't seem like it offered much.

That couldn't have been further from the truth. The large amount of screen real estate introduced a lot of utility that previous models didn't have. Widgets make it one of the most useful smart displays I've ever used, and that's saying a lot for someone who routinely works with these devices.
