Amazon Working on Alexa Device That Monitors Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts

Amazon is working on a new Alexa-driven device that can monitor sleep apnea, a disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts, Business Insider reported.

According to the report, the palm-sized device is reportedly designed to sit on a bedside table and use a millimeter-wave radar to sense your breathing.

Amazon’s project is apparently being developed under the code name “Brahms” after the German composer of Lullaby.

The device resembles a “standing hexagonal pad connected to a metal wire base,” the report noted.

Amazon declined to comment on the existence of the project.

If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea.

OnePlus has also announced a new concept phone that used mmWave radar to monitor breathing.

According to the company, it is using a technology called Electronic Color, Material, and Finish (ECMF) for the OnePlus 8T concept phone.
