This extraordinary pillow has impressive features in the way of wireless audio, its namesake "sunrise," and its smart alarm clock system.
And while we've highlighted helpful ways to rise out of bed in the early hours, the Mode Modern team behind this Sunrise Smart Pillow may have devised the best method yet.
The pillow will become a reality thanks to a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign which saw the device smash its initial fundraising goal of $50,000. As of this writing, with seven days remaining in its campaign, the pillow has raised $514,792.
The reason people are so excited about this extraordinary pillow is the impressive features it boasts in the way of wireless audio, its namesake "sunrise," and its smart alarm clock system. (Yes, you can play your favorite music through this pillow.)
The "sunrise" is an LED lighting system within the pillow that helps you gently and gradually wake up in the morning without grogginess or fatigue. Over the course of 5 to 30 minutes, the lights will slowly intensify, starting from a cool blue and ending in a natural, sunny yellow to bring you out of bed as easily as possible.
You tell the pillow when you need to wake up, and thanks to its ability to track your sleep cycle, the pillow can determine when will be the best time to begin your sunrise process, so that you're feeling as fresh as you can when you start your day.
Intrigued? So are we. Check out and donate to their Kickstarter if you'd like to secure your own pillow today. Wouldn't it be great if you could finally stop hitting that snooze button?
