Zucklight: Mark Zuckerberg’s “sleep box” design is now on Indiegogo

When Mark Zuckerberg isn’t running Facebook or testifying on Congressional hill, he is programming a special light to help his wife sleep through the night.

Like any parents, Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have a hard time sleeping through the night. The goal is to create a light that is “visible enough that if she sees it she’ll know it’s an okay time for one of us to get the kids, but faint enough that the light won’t wake her up if she’s still sleeping. And since it doesn’t show the time, if she wakes up in the middle of the night, she knows to just go back to sleep without having to worry about what time it is.”

A few months later, someone took that idea, beefed it up, and turned it into a product on Indiegogo.

The creators aren’t shying away from where they got their design from. Dubbed Zucklight took Zuckerberg’s initial idea and added wireless charging, climate sensors, an audio sound system and 2 extra charging coils for wearable devices.

How Zuckerberg is ok with this, we would never know. But it lets you charge three wireless devices at the same time.

It has a sound system that lets you play your Spotify or YouTube ocean wave playlist. (Here is mine)

The box also has sensors that tell you when your CO₂ level, room temperature, and humidity are out of whack.

The basic version is selling on Indiegogo for $34. Click here to find out
