Mark Zuckerberg Constructs Sleep Box:
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO has built a sleep box for his dear wife Priscilla to enable her sleep very well at night.
According to Mark, Priscilla had been having difficulty sleeping at night because of the kids. The sleep box was built in such a way that it emits some light when it is the right time for her to wake from sleep.
Mark revealed this on his Instagram page:
“Is hard being a mum, and since we have had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night. She will wake up and check the time on her handset to see if the children might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can not fall back asleep. Therefore, I worked on constructing her what I call the “sleep box”.
“It emits a very faint light between the hours of 6-7am. It sits on her nightstand. The light is visible enough that if she sees it she will know it is an okay time for one of us to get the children, but faint enough that the light will not wake her up if she is still sleeping. it does not show the time.
If she wakes up in the mid-night, without having to worry about what time it is, she knows just go back to sleep. This has worked better than I expected and she can now sleep very well through the night.
Building a device to enable my partner sleep better, as an Engineer is one of the best ways I can think of expressing my gratitude and love. Many of my friends have told me they will want something like this, so I am putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more persons!”
