Today, TIME revealed the Pod has been selected as one of TIME's 2019 Best Inventions. The annual list features the 100 best inventions that are making the world better, smarter and even a bit more fun.
Launched to incredible success in February of 2019, the Pod is the first bed to combine dynamic temperature regulation, biometric tracking, smart home integrations and sleep coaching to deliver a total solution for enhanced rest and recovery. Its most groundbreaking feature, dynamic temperature, includes artificial intelligence that learns sleep habits and adjusts the temperature in bed automatically. The feature was built using data and knowledge accumulated over the years as an industry leader, including more than 51 million hours of tracked sleep and a body of circadian rhythm research.
