Why is the Internet of Things trying to sleep with you? Well, let’s back up a minute. The Internet of Things is the name for all those smart home devices, like your refrigerator that can text you a grocery list or your vacuum cleaner that can be started remotely. So now Silicon Valley is trying to connect your mattress to the Internet. But why?
The main reason is better sleep. An IoT mattress can tell you things like how many times you woke up in the night or whether you were tossing and turning. It can help you get healthier by starting at the foundation - improving your sleep.
But Silicon Valley is trying to make your sleep better in other ways, too. People are wanting new mattresses more often than in previous generations (you should actually change your mattress about every 8 years) so now the Internet can deliver a new mattress right to your door, usually for much less than any store can.
