The Spanish bed manufacturer Durmet explains that "If your partner isn’t faithful, then at least your mattress will be."
The Smarttress has built-in sensors to detect vigorous rhythmic motions--particular motions verified by research. It then sends an alert to the owner through an app. The Telegraph explains:
According to one of the engineers who developed the so-called Lover Detection System, when the ultrasonic sensors inside the mattress detect rhythmic movements, the communication system sends information to a server.
“If it detects suspicious activity regarding time of use, frequency, intensity or speed, it sends a notification to the phone terminal with which it is linked," said Iván Miranda.
Durmet say the technology is so advanced that the jealous app user will be able to see in real time what parts of the bed are seeing the most activity, giving him or her a mental picture of exactly what their partner is up to.
That might be too much information.
