小编摘要:近日,日本早稻田大学的研究小组发明了一个智能小熊,专门用以“治疗”人们的打鼾现象。当人们打鼾的时候,小熊就会将头部翻转至另一侧,帮助当事人打开气道,防止窒息。

导读:许多打鼾者的伴侣们总是想方设法结束鼾声带来的困扰——鼻条、吸入器,甚至把网球缝入睡衣后面。当然,日本人绝不会满足于如此低科技的解决方法。早稻田大学的一个研究小组已经发明出了一个机器人小熊,当人们打鼾的时候,它就会翻转头部,已打开气道,防止窒息现象。

Many people who live with a partner who snores are willing to try anything to end the torment - nasal strips, inhalers, and even pyjamas with tennis balls sewn into the back.

Naturally, the Japanese were not content with such low-tech solutions to the problem.

A research group from Waseda University has come up a robotic bear that flips over people's heads in their sleep to open their airways.

The bear is used as a pillow, but has a built-in microphone.

As soon as Jukusui-kun detects a loud snore, his paw reaches up (gently, at least in the brief video demo on display), and pushes the sleeper's head to one side.

The motion should push sufferers of sleep apnoea - the loud form of snoring that can be dangerous not only to relationships but to health - into a position where they no longer snore.

The bear was shown off at the International Robot Show in Japan. Jukusui-kun means 'deep sleep' - and the robot is targeted specifically at snorers whose snoring inhibits their blood oxygen level, with a separate hand monitor sensing when blood oxygen levels drop.

The only problem is that not only do they have to sleep on a bear-shaped pillow with jointed robotic hands, they also have to insert their hand into another bear-shaped monitor which monitors blood oxygen.

Monitors are also built into the sheet under the sleeper - the idea being that electrical cords would disturb sleep.

The bear waits until low blood oxygen and loud snores indicate that the person sleeping on Jukusui-kun is snoring loudly, then the paw strikes.

The bear is not yet on sale - and whether or not a robotic paw reaching up to turn one's head over is any more effective than one's partner shoving the person across the duvet remains to be seen.
