Hi-tech night-time nudge for that snorer in your life

Tech Tools: Make your noisy bedmate shift position, handsfree

 

$249

Tuwan is one of those products that if you need it, you might be able to justify the cost, but the rest of us are left a bit mystified. It’s a small bedside device and smart pad for inside your pillowcase that claims to help you stop snoring by forcing you to shift your position. Here’s how it apparently works: you put the pad under your pillow, and the bedside device will detect the sound of your snoring during the night. Once it does, it signals the pad to inflate one of its four airbags with its built-in pump to force you to shift your head’s position and in theory stop you snoring. It’s a few hundred dollars for a hi-tech nudge.
