Talk about a rude awakening. If you snore, this new pillowbot from Japan will gently brush your cheek to get you to stop—or flip out of bed in terror as its disturbingly slow arm moves toward you.
It’s designed to help people sleep better by stopping chronic snorers and those who suffer from sleep apnea, which causes breathing difficulty while sleeping. The robot, called “Jukusui-kun” or “deep sleep” in Japanese, is designed to look like a friendly snoozing polar bear.
Horror movie waiting to happen.
