Tired of being tired? Sleepman wearable will help you rest easy

Coffee might be the only thing that gets you buzzing in the morning, but a new wearable is creating a buzz of its own. Meet the Sleepman, heralded as the “first device to combine sleep-optimization and enhancement functions with daytime drowsiness prevention and concentration-loss alerts.” So if you’re buzzing after reading this, it’s probably out of excitement.

Recently launched on Kickstarter, this next-generation sleep wearable aims to monitor electromagnetic biosignals, providing insights into activity patterns whether you’re asleep or awake. Noting that the human brain is constantly generating biosignals, the Sleepman team claims that its revolutionary new device “reads these [signals] from your wrist and analyzes [them] with its unique Electro-Dermal Activity tracking algorithms.

With the Sleepman, you’ll be privy to features like the doze-off alert, which is meant to improve road safety by warning drivers when they’re losing their focus; the biosmart alarm, which monitors your brain’s signals to wake you up at the optimal time during your sleep cycle; and the power nap, which catches you right before you fall into a deep sleep so that you get your ideal cat nap without losing the entire day.

“We’ve been working on this for more than two years, always with the aim of improving people’s sleep,” said Dr. Alexander Praskovsky, founder of Sleepman. “Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our well-being — and an essential element to staying healthy, happy and alert — but studies show that a majority of people suffer from some kind of sleeping problems or not getting enough sleep. We hope that Sleepman can be a big part of making the world sleep better.”

With 57 days left in its campaign, the Sleepman has raised more than $15,000. If you get in early enough, you can pre-order a Sleepman of your own for the early-bird price of $99. After all, what wouldn’t you pay for a better night’s rest?
