There are plenty of items on the market today that promise to track your sleep and help you sleep better so you are more rested and functional the next day. A new sleep tracking device has surfaced called the Sphere that was designed by a Brit named James Proud. Proud happens to be a Theil Fellow and received a $100,000 grant from Peter Thiel to work in technology in the US.
The Sense is the first product that Proud has developed and it is an orb that sits at the bedside and records data on sleep. It can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter now for $99 and aims to ship in Q4 2014.
Sense is able to measure temperature, light, motion, humidity, sound, and particle counts for pollen and dust in the air. Sphere also has a sleep pill that clips to your pillow to record your movements during sleep without having to wear a wristband. The gadget syncs to your iPhone to hare data and can tell you when you tossed and turned and what the cause for that was.
