Snoring can be serious business, whether it involves sleep apnea or spousal wrath. But to date, testing for sleep disorders has often involved a tangle of wires, sensors and face masks applied during an uncomfortable night's stay at a clinic.
Psychologists at the Hiroshima International University want to change all that with an analytical "electronic pillow" that's been given the decidedly Japanese-English name of "Don't You Think?" (We don't get it either, so don't waste any time thinking about it.)
The pillow is equipped with a device that "studies your sleep pattern and the conditions of internal organs while you sleep," according to Fareastgizmos. It sounds vaguely like alien abduction, but we'd be willing to pay that price too for a good night's sleep.
