Analysis of your sleeping habits (or perhaps, lack of) usually involves an overnight stay at a hospital where you are covered in wires and surrounded by machines. However, in 2003 three sleep-deprived students at Brown University in Providence, R.I., thought that consumers should be able to monitor their own health.
Enter the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach, a device that lets uses measure, track, and analyze their sleeping patterns at home.
It's a gadget that, according to Zeo, functions like a professional sleep monitor, but with only two parts: a headband and a wireless receiver designed as an alarm clock.
Jason Donahue, Ben Rubin, and Eric Shashoua spent five years researching the technology, acquiring $14 million in venture capital along the way. Zeo was launched in the United States in 2009 and may soon be available in Australia.
