Sleep technology looks set to be a huge growth area this year, and Philips has been quick to develop devices such as SmartSleep.

In order to keep you in this resting state, SmartSleep plays patterns of white noise through built-in speakers. It might sound strange, but research shows it helps you feel more rested. $399.99.
