Luna is the smart mattress cover you never knew you neededBy Shawn Knight 12 comments
The smart home movement is rapidly expanding to include virtually every aspect of the home and apparently, your bed isn't off-limits. A product by the name of Luna - which promises to deliver the future of sleep - is taking Indiegogo by storm. So what's all of the fuss about?
Luna is a mattress cover; but not just any mattress cover, it's a smart cover that can intelligently manage the temperature of your bed, track your sleep and integrate with your smart home.
The smart cover learns your behavior over time so, for example, it'll know when you're about to lay down and sets the bed to a comfortable temperature to help you fall asleep faster. Built-in sensors allow Luna to track your sleep phases, heart rate and breathing rate and when it's time to wake up, there's a smart alarm to wake you up at the right moment of light sleep so you feel refreshes instead of groggy.
Luna pairs up with a smartphone app for total control and best yet, it works with existing smart home products such as smart thermostats, door locks, light bulbs and more. Using IFTTT, Luna can even be programmed to brew you a cup of coffee the moment you step out of bed.
Luna launched on Indiegogo just yesterday and has already managed to blow past its $100,000 funding goal. The cover is available in full, queen, king and California king sizes with pricing starting at $179. You'll need to act quick if you want one, however, as the early bird queen and king size tiers have already sold out.
Luna is expected to ship to early backers in August of this year.
