Kokoon's functions and development confidential stories are to be understood by looking at the following movies and others.

Mr. Tim Antos, who is also a technical engineer and a CEO of Kokoon, seems to have noticed that as soon as night he worked in the daytime, he spent an idle time to sleep, a few years ago.

Mr. Antos said that "Kokoon" was completed as a result of thinking about a way to sleep more naturally without relying on drugs and earplugs, which can be incorporated into a busy life style.

Kokoon seems to be finished in headphones that create a space where you can relax anytime and anywhere, while traveling by car ......

When you sleep on a train ... ...

And of course you can use it even at bedtime every night. Music that brings the brain naturally to the switch off state has come to flow from Kokoon.

To play music, use smartphones, select sleep mode from the dedicated application as "sleeping" "only one cycle" "light nap" "deep nap" from four. Then just set the wake-up time and tap the play button. The application is planned to be offered for iOS and Android, and cooperation with iOS healthcare application is also under planning.

Also, existing headphones are somewhat uncomfortable with steaming or squeezing ears when they are wearing at bedtime, but Kokoon seems to let the inside of the headphone escape by using gel material for the pad part It is becoming.

Furthermore, it is said that the structure of the ear and head does not hurt when turning over.

The head band has a sensor to measure brain waves. It is a mechanism that measures optimum music by measuring the depth of sleep.

Even in the aircraft's airplane which makes me feel noisy, I can sleep better thanks to the noise cancellation function.

Because Kokoon sounding an alarm at "Awakening time" according to each sleep cycle, you can have a pleasant morning.

The appearance of sleeping measured by the sensor can be confirmed by the application. Evaluate the quality of sleeping out of 100 points ... ....

Also, Kokoon can be folded up, so it's easy to carry.

By storing it in a special case ......

It will fit in the bag and will fit in spot.

Richard Hall, co-founder of Kokoon, has been involved in the development of Kokoon for two years and has worked with many engineers and designers and scientists who are studying sleep.

This is where we are making Kokoon's prototype by hand.

It is said that he made hundreds of prototypes and repeatedly tested and refined.

And that is Kokoon, it was created. For the development of Kokoon, Japanese acoustic equipment manufacturersOnkyoIt is engaged, it is finished in headphones that can be used when sleeping, and that you can enjoy music with high sound quality.

Furthermore, using the developer's kit of Kokoon, "I take several sleeps a dayMultiphase sleepControl of Sleep "" Learning at Sleep "" Meditation ""Lucid dreamYou can use various ways of using such as "Control of music" and "Playing music according to the shape of EEG".
