Yesterday, Tuesday, Google connected a new home device to the Internet and monitored users in their sleep, called the “Nest Hub”.
This latest invention for the US tech giant “Euro News” will be a test of how much users trust the company and whether they will be allowed to spy on their sleep.
The device has a 7-inch smart screen that, if allowed, uses consumer sleep monitoring technology to monitor people’s sleep patterns and interact with other devices.
Google will make this feature available for free for at least one year.
This technology is done using a chip called “Soli” and a radar device is used to track any movement, including breathing.
The device is priced at $ 100 and has the ability to display images and videos, and can answer questions and manage homework with the voice control feature provided by Google, but the only drawback or perhaps its advantage is that it does not contain a camera.
“Nest Hub” provides weekly sleep reports, all information about the user’s bedtime, how often they sleep at night, and benefits and coughs.
