Tired of nudging your snoring spouse? The new Sleep Number does it for you

Back in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s day, to keep your toes toasty, you stuck a hot water bottle between the sheets before hopping into bed. In 2017, your smart bed can start heating the lower quadrant shortly before you’re due to head to sleep. At least, that’s what Sleep Number promises with its 360 smart bed, which it introduced at CES 2017.

The Sleep Number 360 smart bed has much of the same technology as its It Bed, but it also has a few more tricks inside the foam. Like the It, the 360 has an app that lets you adjust the firmness and track how well you slept. But the sensors also respond to what’s going on, with the air chambers filling or deflating to give your pressure points more or less support based on your sleep position. It also uses your biometric data to tell if you’re snoring, then raises your head slightly to keep you from disturbing your bed buddy.

As the bed tracks your every movement, it will make a lot of adjustments. If it knows you usually turn in at 11 p.m., it will start heating up the foot area 15 minutes before. When you get out of bed for a 1:30 a.m. glass of water, it will illuminate soft LEDs to light your path. If your alarm is set for 7:30, it will sound an alarm when it senses you’re in a light sleep cycle. As with the It Bed, you can integrate your Fitbit or Withings activity tracker to see if exercise impacts your sleep cycle. It’s a bed that knows lots about you and uses that info to help lull you to sleep — so, just call it Big Mother?

Sleep Number hasn’t released pricing yet, but when the bed goes on sale later this year, you can expect it to be on par with its other offerings.

Do you sleep well at night? According to a lot of studies, roughly half of all Americans feel sleepy during the day -- a firm indicator that their nightly sleep isn't quite as restorative as it should be. Whether it be stress (due to high electric bills, maybe?) or just a lack of comfort, poor sleep quality is nearing alarming levels.

Temperature plays a large role in that. In fact, reaching a proper room temperature is one of the most important factors for achieving high-quality, restful sleep. According to, the ideal temperature for the bedroom is around 65 degrees.

Sleep is one of the most essential parts of your health. In fact, a lack of sleep is similar to severe intoxication in its effects on your motor and cognitive abilities. Intellibed recently introduced the Sleep Genius Smart Base, designed with research used by NASA to help astronauts fall asleep in space. As it turns out, the brain can be quite active even during the depths of sleep, and the most active system is the part of the brain responsible for sound and hearing.

The Sleep Genius Smart Base is intended to complete the Intellibed sleep environment in conjunction with the Gel Matrix mattress. While the Gel Matrix mattress is designed to work with the Sleep Genius Smart Base, other mattresses can be used. The Smart Base uses a system Intellibed calls “Treat versus track.” In other words, rather than tracking sleep quality, the bed is designed to treat them instead.
