While we’re still waiting for Clocky to hit store shelves (and promptly roll off), we’ve discovered yet another bio-alarm clock, from aXbo. Though we’ve previewed others, aXbo claims to be the first machine that inteprets your sleep cycle to wake you at the optimal time (and they have a timeline to back up their claim). They also note, prominently, that “The unique technology, design & logo of the new aXbo are legally protected” — which is helping us sleep easier, already!
It has been scientifically proven that body movements of human beings during sleep have a direct connection to the different sleeping phases.
aXbo registers the body movements via a sensor in a comfortable towelling wristband and transmits the data exclusively during the rare movements. During average 300 movements per night there results a total transmission period of only 3 seconds (0.01 seconds transmission period per movement).
aXbo sends with extremely low capacity of 0.0001 Watt (comparison of a mobile transmitting power: average 1 Watt)
One thing seems certain: in the future, everyone will be sleeping less but feeling better about it.
