11 Devices For Hacking Your Health — 1.) Beddit


Beddit is a sleep monitor that attaches to your bed, not you. Based on ballistocardiography (BCG) a method for measuring body movement caused by hifts in the mass of blood and the heart, Beddit measures night time sleep activity. The device uses an algorithm that tracks sleep cycles and can store this information in your mobile device. It can also use your mobile device's microphone to track snoring. The company has formed a partnership with Misfit Wearables and also has an API available for developers.
