“Phones, speakers and watches have all become “smart” enough to interact with users, so why shouldn’t beds follow suit? JD Velilla, senior product leader for product management, project management, innovation and strategy at Serta Simmons Bedding, is trying to make that happen. “Instead of just relying on what we would call static technologies—foam or a coil that reacts to you once it’s in the bed—we’re trying to use technologies that interact with you,” he said. This could be anything from a cooling feature to adjustable support structures to sensors that track sleep patterns and heart rates, improving overall health.”
Serta Simmons is looking to incorporate “smart” technology into beds that will make the product more interactive without changing its look.
