This system hacks your body’s natural sleep biorhythms with intelligent climate control.
Don’t you hate waking up in the middle of the night to kick the covers off because you’re too hot, only to fall back asleep and then wake up hours later because you’re too cold? This doesn’t just interrupt your sleep, it resets your REM clock. It’s also the problem that one Providence-based startup is looking to solve with their intelligent climate control system for your bed.
BedJet V2 is a specially-designed, rapid cooling and heating climate control system with sleep-inducing biorhythm technology to help you doze off sooner and stay asleep longer. Following a successful campaign on Kickstarter back in 2013 and an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank, the team has returned with a new and improved model. This time, version two promises to tap into your body’s biorhythm by using natural triggers to wake you up gently and incredibly refreshed.
Compatible with any bed size, the system can be easily stored under the mattress while a duct routes cool or warm air into the bedding. Once activated, BedJet V2 quietly generates a small cushion, puffing up the sheets and blanket so the air can flow through. This tenting effect combined with the turbulent flow enables the air to permeate throughout the entire sleeping area. By no means is the system meant to replace your existing HVAC unit, but simply warm up or cool down your sheets in three minutes or 10 seconds, respectively.
“BedJet air based warming is not your grandmother’s electric mattress pad – it’s a personal toasty warm sauna right in your own bed, on-demand in just 180 seconds. The instant and powerful warming forever ends cold feet, cold legs and bundling up with layers of pajamas to get into chilly winter beds,” the company explains.
With BedJet V2, your smartphone or tablet becomes more than just a remote control for your bed, but one for your body as well. The smart system communicates with its accompanying iPhone or Android app over Bluetooth, and will make a temperature profile for you based on gender, age and body type. Aside from that, you will be able to create manual temperature profiles, to activate different warming or cooling preferences over your own customized time scale, and recall them with one-touch memory settings.
Hour by hour, embedded sensors track your sleep and the ambient temperature, while the system kicks on and off accordingly. Since every person is different, BedJet V2 is capable of learning its user’s behaviors. Night after night, it will incorporate adjustments to your sleep temperature profile to determine the perfect profile for you.
“BedJet v2 takes a technological leap past sleep sensors that simply monitor and educate on your prior night’s sleep. BedJet v2 uses muscular bed climate control to hack into your body’s own natural pre-programmed circadian biorhythm’s to fundamentally alter what your body THINKS it should be doing while you are in bed,” its creators add.
