I remember when I was a kid listening to my dad snore through the wall and thinking wow. If you sleep near someone who snores I know you understand completely.  But there is a hopeful new invention for the both of you. Enter the smart pillow. A smart pillow touts that it could put an end to waking up next to a buzz saw or being one. how so?

The “snore activated nudging pillow” is fitted with an integrated microphone that picks up the sonic vibrations of snoring. It automatically inflates an internal air bladder that increases the pillow’s depth by 3inches. This elevation can open up a person's airways to prevent them from snoring. The theory is that upon sensing the issue it gently pushes a snorer into a new position to stop their snoring or wake them up gently – and that leaves you to sleep in peace.
