WORLDKINGS - Daily Highlights – May 15, 2019 - Xiaomi crowdfunds the PMA Graphene neck smart sleep aid pillow with bone conduction
(Worldkings.org) Xiaomi has announced the PMA Graphene neck smart sleep aid pillow. The smart sleep aid features a classic grooved design, made of 40D memory cotton core, and a three-dimensional wrap that evenly releases neck pressure.
The pillow also features a graphene-heated area which gives a soothing effect. When the device is powered on, warm far-infrared light wave surrounds the neck, and the heat is applied slowly to relieve neck fatigue and release body pressure. There is also a built-in smart module that records the user’s sleep pattern, noting such parameters as the depth of sleep and duration, the number of breaths and the times the user changed sleeping position. At the same time, the smart alarm clock can be preset to wake you up within a specified time.
Furthermore, the sleep aid pillow uses a wireless Bluetooth connection. The Bluetooth module is integrated with the graphene film and the temperature control. This enables the device to be paired with a smartphone and as such, the temperature can be adjusted from the phone. The Bluetooth can be turned on with just a button. The Bluetooth module is integrated with the graphene film, and the temperature control and Bluetooth can be turned on with one button. The temperature can be adjusted according to individual needs.
Bone conduction allows you to hear sound through the vibration of the bones of your face (jawbones and cheekbones). This means that the sound waves are bypassing the outer and middle ear (where the eardrum is located) and directly stimulating the inner ear (hearing organ. Thus, there is no need for headphones while sleeping. The music sound level is also low, ensuring others are not disturbed.
The PMA Graphene neck smart sleep aid pillow is on crowdfunding for 299 yuan ($44) and is expected to start shipping on June 2.
