Some people snore so hard, it scares the tooth fairy. HBI’s DreamKeeper 400 looks like one of Wonder Woman’s magic bracelets, but it doesn’t deflect bullets—it diverts snoring, promising a good night’s sleep.
It’s funny. I’ve never known any snorers to complain about their sleep. I know it’s a serious symptom and all, but they usually seem pretty refreshed. It’s everyone within a 100-foot radius that needs some quality sack time. Either way, this might make for a nice gift for the snorer in your bed/life.
No little elves are involved. Instead, HBI says that the unit uses Breath Synchronization Program (BSP) and Parallelized ElectroStatic Field (PESF) technology to “rebuild the user’s biological clock.” In other words, no electric shocks. Instead, the unit works with your sleepy self to slow down breathing, making that nervous system a lot less nervous.
The DreamKeeper 400 sells for $150 at Target, Amazon, and directly on the HBI website.
