Sleeply

Physical Computing & Coding Project

Not being able to sleep is stressful. Our research showed us that people turn to their phone at night to help them get to sleep by putting on relaxing sleep playlists or guided sleep meditations.

The problem?

Studies have shown that the blue light emitted by screens on cell phones affects our sleep cycle by restraining the production of melatonin.

What if we could control our go-to sleep promoting activities without our phones?

The Solution:

Sleeply. A bedside sleep-aid that encourages you to stop using your phone throughout the night and promotes restful sleep.
