Will Power Sleep Monitor

In the digital era, many of us struggle with sleep. Numerous studies have shown that blue light emitted from digital displays can affect the amount and quality of our sleep. Many products have tried to introduce different external elements to help improve one’s sleep, such as mood lighting or fragrances.

 

Alternatively, I created a device to improve sleep by harnessing one's own will power. Using pressure sensors embedded in the bed, the device measures sleep time and sleep consistency in order to allocate one's digital allowance (hours of computer usage per day). Thereby, turning our electronics into an aid rather than a burden on sleep.
