Solution for snoring

A German scientist has come up with a solution for snoring, a computerized pillow that shifts the head's sleeping position until the noise stops.

Daryoush Bazargani, professor of computer science at the University of Rostock and the pillow's inventor, was displaying a prototype of his pillow at a health conference in Germany. The pillow is attached to a computer, which is the size of a book, rests on a bedside table, and analyses snoring noises. The computer then reduces or enlarges air compartments within the pillow to facilitate nasal airflow to minimize snoring as the user shifts during sleep.The ergonomic pillow can also be used for neck massages. Several U.S. firms were interested in manufacturing the pillow.
