Get Your Own Sleep Room

from the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz dept

Some people take sleep very seriously. Not getting enough sleep is much more dangerous than most people realize, but it’s become more common in our society for people to be chronically sleep deprived. The problem is apparently quite an issue in Japan, where Matsushita has developed a $30,000 sleep room system designed to help ease you into and out of sleep. The system includes an automatically adjusting bed, a TV showing soothing images, a sound system playing relaxing sounds and (my personal favorite) a bed designed to massage you gently into sleep. The system can be used for a cat nap or a full night’s sleep. Either way, it appears that folks in Japan are quite excited about this sort of research – as an associated picture with the article shows Japanese office workers taking their naps in the company’s showroom that demonstrates a number of recliners.
