Self-measurement and home automation do not stop at the bed. The mattress The Pod by Eight Sleep aims to provide a healthy sleep and can control its temperature. Both heating and cooling is possible, said the manufacturer. Left and right sides can be controlled separately.

The mattress can reach temperatures between 12 and 45 degrees Celsius and can be controlled via the IFTTT automation service (If this, then that) or Alexa devices, Google Home, Philips Hue and Wemo products.

Sensors for monitoring sleep time, bedtime, waking time, respiratory and heart rate, heart rate variability, and bed temperature are all included in The Pod. The sensors should also recognize REM phases in which most dreams take place. The app calculates the necessary supporting temperatures and evaluates sleep.

The Pod can be reserved in advance for around $ 100. Shipping should take place from April 2019. Prices range from just under $ 2,000 for the normal version over $ 2,200 for the queen-size variant up to $ 2,500 for the largest mattress Cali King. If not satisfied, the mattress can be returned free of charge for the first 100 days.
