Sleep is crucial for every one of us. Unfortunately, most people don’t sleep enough each night or the quality of sleep is poor.

The Eight Sleep Pod is the mattress of the future in a mission to help you get more relaxing sleep. It comes with a special cover called Active Grid which comes with a cord attached that goes to a pod with water.

This basically allows the Eight Sleep Pod to get perfect temperature control over your mattress. The hub pumps water into your mattress to either cool it down or to heat it up, based on your preferences.

Smart Hair Brush

I am sure that many of you think that a smart hairbrush is a bunch of nonsense. However, the Kerastase Hair Coach begs the differ.

This small hair brush uses a microphone and a ton of sensors to determine the health of your hair and scalp. It does this by measuring the frizziness and hair manageability alongside split ends and breakages alongside the hair strands.

It connects to a mobile app and therefore enables you to track your hair brushing habit.
