From relieving backaches to regulating temperatures between the sheets and helping to gurantee sound sleep, mattresses have become seriously high-tech these days. Now they can help detect if a partner is cheating.
Costing a whooping £1,200, the Spanish-designed ‘smartress’ allows mistrusting spouses who are away from home to check their smartphones to find out if the mattress is in use and how many people are on it.
This is in a bid to check the high rate of cheating prevalent in Spain.
The high-tech bed, which can be purchased with ‘upmost confidentiality’ and comes with a five year warranty, uses 24 ultrasonic sensors to detect ‘suspicious activity’, alerting the owner via a mobile app.
Its ‘Lover Detection System’ generates a 3D map to show which areas are receiving greater pressure and what movement is taking place, all in ‘real time’.
Described by developers as ‘foolproof’, the electronic genius behind the system is said to be undetectable as it is integrated within the mattress’s springs.
Spokesman for makers Durmet, Jose Antonio Muinos said:
We came up with the idea after we saw the figures on infidelity that said Spaniards were the most unfaithful in Europe.
It is a concept that will bring peace of mind to men and women, not just during the night but also during the day while they are out at work and the bed should really be being used.
On the outside it is just a normal looking and very comfortable mattress, but inside hides some cutting-edge technology.
We think the mattress will do well internationally because it is the only one in the world that uses this technology and is designed specifically for the objective of catching cheating partners.
The ‘smartress’ is not the first tool designed to catch lovecheats as some mobile apps have been created in the past as well as a vibrating smart bed.
