The Luna Mattress Cover Makes Your Bed Smart and Connected

Sleep is a vital, yet unpredictable commodity. Without it, we crumple into a heap of confused, bumbling depression that only more hours of shut-eye can fix. For many of us, though, the prospect of a solid eight-hour rest seems so elusive as to be fanciful. Some research points the finger of blame at technology for the always-on lifestyle it promotes, but one new piece of smarthome kit wants to stay out of your way and make evenings more relaxing. Luna, a smart-mattress cover, is currently raising funds on IndieGoGo, and it seems to be a genuine upgrade to the tucking-up process.

The Luna is riddled with sensors, and much like the Microsoft Band, this smart-cover tracks your sleep by measuring your heart rate, breathing patterns and hours in bed. But where the Band’s functionality ends, Luna’s is just beginning. A temperature sensor notes how warm you are — each half is tracked separately on a double bed — and Luna uses its 90W of power to raise the temperature to best sleeping comfort. It will even prepare your bed, or your half of it, to be the correct temperature at your usual bedtime.

The cover is also equipped with Wi-Fi, which allows it to talk with your phone. In so doing, Luna is able to trigger other smart devices as you retire or rise, such as locking doors and firing up coffee machines. At present, direct integrations with the likes of Nest, Emberlight and Lockitron are in place, but most other smarthome products are also compatible with the app via IFTTT. On a practical note, it is nice to see that HTTPS, SSL and 128-bit encryption have all been used to protect such potentially sensitive communications. The cover can also be washed normally, and a 15V power supply has been chosen for safety.

Folks backing Luna’s IndieGoGo campaign to the tune of $199 can secure a standard, full-size cover, while Queen, King and California King sizes are also on offer for a few dollars more. At the time of writing, this impressive product has raised over 500% of its original funding goal, so expect plenty of buzz when the first units ship in August.
