    Abstract

    Not getting enough sleep is detrimental to our health and productivity, yet we have difficulty to maintain consistent bedtimes. Technological solutions to this problem mostly focus on detecting sleep patterns and providing feedback on them. We felt there was an opportunity for a perspective that concentrates on one's subjective experience. We propose Snoozle, an actuated pillow that supports consistent bedtimes by inviting users to bed, and improves the sleeping experience by enhancing the feeling of co-presence. In this proposal, we present how the concept of Snoozle developed from structured brainstorms, storyboards and sketches. We discuss the actuated pillow behavior and the envisioned interaction, and we detail our next steps.
