Jukusui-Kun is a polar bear-shaped robotic pillow equipped with a pulse-oxygen meter and a moving paw that gently touches the sleeper's face to stop snoring
Jukusui-Kun was developed by researchers from Tokyo's Waseda University and Demonstrated during International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo
Demonstrated during this month's International Robot Exhibition (IREX) in Tokyo, Jukusui-Kun is a polar bear-shaped robotic pillow that, like Paro the seal-bot, masks a serious purpose beneath its cute and cuddly exterior. Jukusui-Kun is designed to help snorers and those who live with them - whenever snoring becomes too loud (and sleep apnea becomes a danger), the robot raises its paw and gently touches the sleeper's face to trigger a change of sleeping position.
