Want to Sleep Smarter? Try Balluga


Sure, a good night's sleep can be replaced with caffeine, yoga, and cat naps. But it's frowned upon. Instead, you could spring for a Balluga bed.

The "first truly smart bed" manages your sleep experience in real-time, adjusting firmness, support, and temperature throughout the night. Chock-full of technology, the mattress can be personalized to fit you and your partner's needs; control individual settings via a mobile app or touch-screen remote.

Balluga is currently raising money on Kickstarter; it has about $16,000 or its $50,000 goal.

Pledge $25 to $250 for a T-shirt, night gown and cap, or Balluga Club membership. An actual mattress, however, will require deeper pockets.

For folks sleeping alone every night, the single or small double mattress should do the trick, available on Kickstarter for $1,199 or $1,499, respectively. If you need something bigger, the medium double costs $1,699, large double $1,899, and California King $1,995.

But that's just the mattress (which features firmness control, vibrating massage, and an anti-snoring system). You can splurge for Balluga's bed frame, with external movement sensor and built-in LED lighting for night-time illumination.

Mattress and bed combinations cost anywhere from $1,999 to $3,299; a customized version comes in at a whopping $5,000.

Don't be so quick to scoff at these early-bird prices, though: Balluga's values are on par with what you'll find when shopping for an adjustable Sleep Number mattress or high-end Serta bed.

"We started Balluga because we wanted everyone to be able to have a good night's sleep every night," the company wrote in a campaign update. "With your help we hope that we will be able to make our dreams and your dreams come true."
