This smart mattress uses machine learning to figure out how to help you sleep better. If you snore, the bed can raise your head slightly before the snoring wakes up your spouse.

Aryballe Technologies’ NeOse is a digital sniffing device aimed at uncovering dangerous smells, such as gas leaks. It uses an optical sensor to identify molecules. It can discern hundreds of smells. At the moment, the technology is expensive — at $10,000 to $15,000 — so the company is targeting enterprises at first. Over time, Aryballe hopes to create a consumer device.

The Oria product is built on the idea that scents can improve your quality of sleep. The Oria produces smells that it claims can recharge your batteries faster while you sleep. I sniffed various scents like a lavender mix that the company says could help you relax, fall asleep faster, and sleep better and longer. It uses recyclable scent capsules that last about two months.
