With overall pressure and competition increasing, problems of sleep disorders are becoming more common. And tapping this exact issue, the latest product from the house of Xiaomi is a smart sleep sensor. Under its crowdfunding platform, Xiaomi has launched a pebble-size smart sensor device, called the Lunar smart sleep sensor. As the name suggests, this device intelligently analyzes a user’s sleep duration and quality, and sends out periodic sleep reports through the mobile app. The app works on Android phones running Android 4.0 and higher, and on iPhones running iOS 8.0 and higher.

Another interesting feature that the smart sleeper sensor comes with is a Triple sound button, which plays soothing music to help a user fall asleep, and in addition to that it apparently also gives expert advice on troubled sleep. Also, for the intelligent sleep tracking to work, the sleep sensor needs to be kept on or inside a pillow. The device emits zero radiations and electromagnetic waves, so users do not have to worry about any harm caused by keeping it close to them when sleeping.

One more very interesting thing about the device is that it runs on very low power. Xiaomi claims that on just one hour of charging, the device lasts for about 90 days, which is almost three months. The battery of the device has an entire durability period of 50,000 hours. The Lunar sleep sensor costs RMB 69, which is about Rs 700, and it is already listed on the crowdfunding platform. The device is expected to ship on January 12, 2017.

Xiaomi has been adding quite a few products to its range lately. Just last month, Xiaomi launched a set of speakers, called Internet Speaker. These speakers can play music directly from the internet. In terms of specifications, the speaker comes with an Amlogc 8726M3 Cortex A9 processor along with an 8GB of built-in storage. However, the fact that the speaker can directly stream from the internet does not mean that they do not function without internet connectivity. The speakers allow storing songs in the speakers itself. It also supports a USB 2.0 port, and AUX cable. These Internet Speaker can also be operated via Mi Home App, and lets users perform different functions using voice control. ALSO READ: Xiaomi to launch an ‘all-new global product’ at CES 2017

Besides these small additions to its company portfolio, Xiaomi is also making a massive big addition. The company’s vice president Hugo Barra recently shared two pictures of a drone-eye-view of Xiaomi’s new technology park. In a brief post, Barra revealed that Xiaomi’s tech park will consist of eight buildings in total. The construction will be spread across a total of 22 million square meters. He also revealed that the project will be complete by 2018. ALSO READ: Xiaomi is building a massive technology park in China; to be ready by 2018
