Apple has acquired Beddit, the company behind a sleep tracking gadget and related mobile app. The announcement was made via Beddit’s privacy page on its website, which reads, “Beddit has been acquired by Apple.”
Beddit, for those unfamiliar, is a sleep monitoring device in the form of a long flat sensor. This device slips underneath a bed’s sheets and plugs into a wall outlet using USB. The device is not noticeable to the person sleeping, as it measures a mere 1.5mm thick, which is about 0.06-inches. Beddit then tracks things about a person’s sleep; it can keep tabs on up to two people.
