One of the first steps to getting a better night's sleep is to know the details of your current sleep pattern. According to Mashable, the ZEEQ smart pillow features built-in tech—sensors, a microphone, speakers, and vibration motors—that allows users to record their own sleep data, helps them stop snoring, and wakes them up exactly when they need too.

While you sleep, the ZEEQ and its connected app play your music through targeted speakers that only you can hear and track your movements to make suggestions that will improve your sleep patterns. The memory foam pillow also listens for snoring and gently vibrates to encourage you to change positions, and works as an alarm system that can wake you at a specific time or when the time is right. 

A Kickstarter project for the pillow is currently underway, and it has already exceeded its goal by $200,000.
