Philips just launch a new headband that plays with white noise which will help your brain get to sleep. However, Philips ‘headband looks like an ill-formed diaper. Its weird design attaches built-in sensors to your forehead in order to detect brain activity. Then it shares that data with a connected mobile app.
When deep sleep is detected, the headband’s speakers will start playing white noise in a slowly repeating pattern, which Philips claims will reinforce a good night’s sleep.
Although, the Philips headband doesn’t appear to be comfortable nor reliable. The effect of noise on deep sleep has suggested that it might help older achieve better sleep and stronger memory. But since those studies are in really small groups, the findings may not hold up.
The SmartSleep headband does sound like it’s bordering snake oil. According to the information, previously on this year, it was found that soothing sounds do help to foster and maintain deep sleep in adults, which in experiments served to improve cognitive and memory capabilities.
The users have to stick the sensors behind their ears every night and strap on the headband. It is mainly designed for people who consistently get less than 7hours of sleep. The Philips SmartSleep headband will be handy this Spring in the US at the cost of $400 (₹25506.00 approx).
