A smart pillow made by lifestyle technology company 10minds wants to end the scourge of snoring once and for all.
The Motion Pillow, which was showcased at CES in Las Vegas, is a memory foam pillow that uses multiple different technologies to help alleviate issues that contribute to snoring.
Using the company’s ‘Sleep Pressure Monitoring System’ - pads inside the pillow that can detect the position of one’s head - the Motion Pillow is able to activate airbags inside the product to give sleepers’ heads and necks a nudge in the right direction.
The pillow technology is coupled with an audio detection system that is capable of hearing snores when they happen.
10Minds says the Motion Pillow has been developed for anyone with chronic snoring
Once the recorder picks up on any heavy breathing, it is able to communicate with the Motion Pillow, which then inflates airbags to reposition a user’s head.
With an optimally aligned head and neck, 10Minds aims to improve the airflow through one’s nose and reduce the possibility of snoring.
Snoring may be in the crosshairs, but 10Minds also recognizes that any pillow that jostles a user's head too abruptly would be working counter to the Motion Pillow’s intention.
As a result, 10Minds says its product is designed to make movements subtle enough that even light sleepers won’t startle in their sleep.
In a demonstration, MailOnline, tested the product to feel just how adeptly the pillow was able to carry out its covert mission.

Users can also view snoring data via an app that provides real-time analysis and feedback
Though the pressure was noticeable, as was the readjustment of the neck, the pillow seemed to succeed in its effort to gently do its job, lifting and supporting the neck without any external input.
For those who want to dive even further into their snoring habits, 10Minds also offers an app that can be used to examine an overview of one’s sleeping data, including the severity of their snoring over time.
