It could be argued that modern societies are chronically sleep deprived due to long work hours, technological gadgets and more, so quality rest is of utmost importance; the Sony Pillow hopes to help in that department. The Sony Pillow is embedded with a small actigraph unit that monitors the sleeping patterns of the user. By doing so, it is able to detect the depth of sleep he or she is in and wake them up accordingly.

Unlike traditional alarm clocks that goes off no matter if the sleeper is in a REM cycle or not, the Sony Pillow intelligently determines the best time to wake them to ensure they are not groggy and tired for the rest of the day.
