LG Electronics has developed a wireless earphone called Breeze that uses brain wave technology to help users sleep comfortably. The device, which is produced by LG's independent company SleepWave, can be worn while sleeping and plays brain wave-based sounds in varying frequencies to induce brain waves that promote sleep or transition to deep sleep.
Breeze has up to 80 built-in sounds for individuals to choose from, all of which trigger an ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). It also has an accompanying mobile app that collects and analyzes sleep data to suggest a sleep care routine and can track sleep and wake times, sleeping positions, and steps taken during the day.
The technology was tested with about 1,000 users in the past quarter and is set to be launched in South Korea in the first half of the year. LG Electronics has also signed a sleep research deal with South Korean startup Asleep to incorporate Asleep's sleep diagnosis technology into LG's home appliances.
