The sleep robot helps people to fall asleep. It uses a specific breathing rhythm, which is automatically replicated by the person holding the robot in their arms. Via the integrated speaker, soothing sounds may be played. The shape is designed in such a way that the user adopts a natural position when cuddling with the robot. This also promotes a natural alignment of the neck and shoulders.
