If you have ever had the unfortunate experience of being woken up in the middle of the night by a snoring partner this tech is for you!
Meet Nora, the smart snoring solution. Nora first came to life after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015 where they raised over eight times their goal of $100,000.
Unlike most of the snoring solutions on the market, Nora does not require the snorer to wear anything or put anything on their face! It works totally without direct contact.
Nora comes in two parts, a sensor or pebble as they call it, that sits on your bedside or headboard.
A pillow insert.
The concept is simple, before you go to sleep you tap the sensor. If this smart sensor detects snoring the pillow insert inflates, slightly moving the head and stopping the snoring.
The science behind it is this little movement stimulates the relaxed muscles and stops the snoring, whilst not disturbing enough to wake.
All activity is tracked in their app allowing you to tracks its effectiveness and see the snoring sound waves!
Sounds pretty impressive!
Our only concern is just how quiet the pillow insert inflating really is?! However that said the concept is interesting and so are the potential future updates. For example it could connect to Nest and record temperatures to see if a link to snoring.
We will follow their developments and let you know as we hear more.
