Have you experienced this?

You woke up and the other person in the bed is snoring. You're comfortable, but you need to move in order to the jostle the person snoring next to you... you're worried you won't find that comfortable sleeping position again...

Introducing the Snore Smart Bed. This bed senses the vibrations coming from a sleeper's body in order to determine if the sleeper is snoring. Once the bed determines that snoring has commenced, one of 4 configurable "Snore Smart" modes is automatically enabled:

- Snore Squirt mode: Water from tubes around the bed is squirted at the snorer until snoring has ceased.

-Snore Shake mode: Through a series of pads placed under the snorer's side of the bed, the snorer is 'tossed about' until snoring has ceased.

-Snore Sear mode: Through a series of heat coils placed under the snorer's side of the bed, the snorer is heated until snoring has ceased.

-Snore Snow mode: Through a series of cooling coils placed under the snorer's side of the bed, the snorer is cooled until snoring has ceased.

-Snore Snicker mode: An arm with a feather extends from the bed and tickles the snorer until snoring has ceased.

Your snorer will respond to one of these "Snore Smart" modes. You can enjoy nights of restful sleep without compromising your own comfortable sleep position. Start today!

       It would be a real bummer if you lived above the subway or underground tube lines. + for the laugh.

       Why sense vibrations? If your bedfellow's snoring, audio pickup should do the job just fine, without the false positives from passing trains or your bedtime toys.

       And the mattress could reticulate and just roll you on your side.
