From the recently funded Kickstarter project:

We created Sense to be simple, uncomplicated and useful. Sense is the first system that combines the insight of your sleep patterns with the data of the environment in your bedroom, including noise, light, temperature, humidity and particles in the air.

With Sense’s Smart Alarm, it can even wake you up in the morning at the right point in your sleep cycle, to avoid that groggy feeling we all hate so much. All easily available via our iPhone and Android applications.

A compelling, beautifully designed product. I’m tempted to back this project but I think I’ll first wait to see if they address the privacy concerns related to sleep data being stored on Amazon Web Services. Similarly, what happens to my data if Hello is one day acquired by Google similar to Nest and Dropcam?
