Forget sleeping pills. The latest insomnia cure comes in the form of a robot who you can curl up with to help you sleep through the night.

Dubbed Somnox, the peanut-shaped pillow measures your rate of breathing and then creates its own steady breathing rhythm in response.

Your body automatically picks up this breathing rhythm, helping you relax and drift off into a peaceful night’s sleep.

Somnox is the brainwave of a group of robotics and engineering students from Delft University of Technology.

The device is still in the prototype phase, but the entrepreneurial engineers behind its creation hope to obtain enough funding to take it to market.

The pillow gathers information using multiple high-sensitivity sensors.

This data can be used to determine whether you are awake or in a deep sleep.

The device’s artificial intelligence algorithm can then interpret that data to create a tailor-made ‘treatment’.

It registers your sleeping state and adjusts its sleeping rhythm to a peaceful state.

Somnox then provides a breathing simulation, based on your own breathing behavior during the night.
