Smart beds and the future of hospitality
Lecture in english
Our vision is that the smart phone no longer will be the natural extension of our hand. The space around us will become the next and ultimate smart device anticipating and meeting our needs as an interface to access customised content, services and products. Our mission is to develop the Internet of Furniture, which will enable the space around us to enhance our wellbeing through contactless and effortless smart furniture at home, in the office or at a hotel. We want to create a world where people can live better and longer, and the best minds are able to express the best version of themselves every day. As early explorers of the Internet of Furniture, we aim to improve the quality of life by reinventing the bed, the piece of furniture on which we spend the majority of our life, as the first smart bed ever. It will be the first walk-in device capable of safeguarding our health. Unlike in the crowded arena of sleep tech devices, we do not believe additional devices to track sleep or health are needed. Rather, we believe smart technology can be incorporated in the products we use now. We have decided to innovate the mainstream furniture industry by creating the first open source platform for the bed. We believe this is going to revolutionize the way people around the world sleep and impact the digital transformation of the hospitality industry.
