This story is part of THOSE, where CNET covers the latest news on the most incredible technologies coming soon.

Sleep Number is synonymous with sleep technology, and the company is back at it with new products, including new furniture, that use science and technology to improve your night’s sleep and overall health, especially for older adults.

At this week CES 2022 in Las Vegas – five years after Genuine Smart Bed 360 was unveiled – the company announced its latest Smart Bed 360 and accompanying furniture.

Sleep Number said it analyzed 13 billion hours of sleep data to make the latest edition of the 360 ​​Smart Bed better at recognizing information about your sleep patterns, what they mean for your health and what you can do to improve them . The company even sees a future where the new 360 Smart Bed can alert you to possible risks of any disease or condition based on your nightly sleep patterns and data.

The new Smart Bed Sleep Number 360 mattress uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to monitor your sleep patterns, spot changes or potential red flags, and provide a person or caregiver with actionable advice that can improve conditions. The Smart Bed 360 adapts to your body as you navigate life changes, and the insights provided can be more impressive than you expect. The company said the mattress could one day detect important health issues like sleep disorders or heart problems, but hasn’t done so yet FDA approval to. If true, that would make the bed’s technology pretty impressive.

Here’s what’s new in the upcoming Smart Bed 360:

  • New multi-sensor technologies
  • Improved software features
  • New AI and machine learning algorithms
  • High-tech textiles, antimicrobial properties
  • Graphite-enriched foam that “moves” air through the sleeping surface to keep you comfortable
  • Compatibility with new additional accessories such as lighting and mobility aids

You’d expect software updates and improved technology in a product upgrade reveal, but the add-on furniture is a newly introduced concept that I think is the main differentiator between this and the original Smart Bed 360. With the accessory add-ons, it simply makes sleeping and lounging a more comfortable experience.

Here is a full list of the new furniture features you can add to your Smart Bed 360:

  • Mobility aids to get in and out of bed
  • Individual audio and noise reduction technology
  • Ambient lighting for circadian rhythm
  • Individually adjustable reading lights
  • Integrated charging and storage bag

When you bought all the furniture it would look like a souped up bed frame complete with shelves and lighting. However, the purpose is to create a better sleeping environment for sleepers with more specialized needs or in later life stages.

The Sleep Number 360 smart beds will be available in 2023 and prices start at $1,099. Prices for furniture have not yet been published.
