Luna is a smart mattress cover that keeps your bed at a comfortable temperature

Everything is smart these days, even your bed. But a typical smart mattress will cost you an awful lot of money. What if you don’t want to, or can’t, spend that much? You could always take the easy option and buy yourself a smart mattress cover, like Luna.

Luna is kitted out with all sorts of sensors so that it can monitor your heart rate, sleep quality, and whether or not you’re snoring. But that’s only part of what it does, because it will also sync up with any iOS or Android smartphone to change the temperature of your bed so that you’re comfortable. Better still, it’s capable of maintaining different temperatures on different sides of the bed, just in case you and your bedmate can’t agree on a single temperature that you both feel is comfortable.

Luna is also open source, which means its possible to integrate it with the rest of your smart home devices (if you have them). It can communicate with Nest to help keep your whole bedroom at a comfortable temperature, you can programme it to lock your smart lock whenever you get into bed, and you could even connect it to a smart coffee maker so that it’ll start brewing as soon as you wake up.

You can find out a little bit more about Luna in the video below, and if you love the idea of being able to turn your bed into a smartbed you can pre-order one on Indiegogo for $229 (£150, including international shipping).
