Sleep Number has a new mattress called a it. Yes, that’s unequivocally it’s name and it’s ostensible to be lowercase. Anyway, after we establish your nap series it uses sensors to lane your heart rate, respirating patterns and movements.

Speaking of, ahem, engaging product names, Big Ass Fans debuted a new Haiku L Series that usually as distinguished as a company’s strange product. At $450, it’s also half a cost of a original, though we will have to buy a $125 wall-unit appendage if we wish a SenseMe technology.
