Smart mattress lets you know when your lover is cheating (or jumping on the bed)

If you ever wanted to know what your mattress gets up to when you aren't around, Smarttress is the thing nobody asked for.

You know, some people have been hurt in love. It's OK. Maybe those people will consider $1,750 (around about AU$2,250 or £1,220) a small price to pay for peace of mind.

That's how much Spanish company Durmet is asking for the Smarttress, a smart mattress with a built-in "Lover Detection System" (yes, that's what it's called) that will send an alert to your smartphone "whenever someone is using your bed in a questionable way." It uses 24 sensors to detect whenever the mattress starts a-bouncing, then pings the user's Android or iPhone.

It's still in production, but to prove to re/code that the mattress is real, the company sent through this video of the testing process. Of course, if you are really that concerned, a nanny-cam will cost you a little less money...although it's worth pointing out that a smart cheater probably won't conduct their extracurricular activities at home.
