Tech the Amazon company is developing a new Alexa-based device that can track and monitor the signs of sleep apnea using radar. The Verge cited a Business Insider report that says the palm-sized device is designed to sit on a nightstand and use millimeter-wave radar to detect breathing, keeping an eye out for disruptions associated with apnea sleep disorder. .
Amazon’s project is apparently developed under the codename “Brahms”, named after the German composer of “Lullaby”, and is the work of an internal Amazon team built last year. In its current form, the device resembles a “standing hex pad attached to a wire base,” Business Insider noted. Along with sleep apnea, Amazon plans to use machine learning and cloud technology to understand other sleep disorders besides sleep apnea.
When contacted for comment, an Amazon spokesperson told The Verge that the company is not commenting on rumors or speculation. (ANI)
