Kokoon by Kokoon Technology
Kokoon Technology are building the world’s first sleep sensing headphones. The headphones incorporate various patent pending comfort innovations which ensure they can be worn in bed. They utilise EEG sensors to monitor sleep and feed data back to a mobile app. The mobile app delivers a variety of audio techniques to the headphones designed to induce sleep, then accurately monitor effectiveness and alter the user’s audio to preserve sleep. Triple layer disturbance protection is provided through noise isolation, active noise cancellation and active white noise.
The headphones utilise Bluetooth wireless technology and are also very light. This makes them ideal for use as ‘every day’ headphones too. Kokoon see their device as being useful in bed but also to replace the user’s existing headphones for their commute, travel, in the gym or at home.
