Crowdsourcing Mornings: SNOOZ: Sound. Sleep.

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Sleep is how we recharge our batteries. From improving brain function to helping prevent a whole host of health issues, sleep is so important that when we think of wellness it really should be: diet, exercise, and sleep.  But sometimes the noises around you keep you up, sometimes your own mind won’t let you rest, and sometimes your neighbor decides to cut down a tree before the sun comes up.  SNOOZ is an acoustic white noise machine that helps you fall asleep and stay asleep. Using a proprietary fan in an acoustically optimized enclosure, SNOOZ produces peaceful white noise to help the world fade away so you can sleep.  Plenty of new devices track sleep disturbances. SNOOZ ends them. Period.

SNOOZ uses a real fan so you don’t have to worry if it’s going to sound real, because it is real. Designed with airflow simulations run on supercomputers, SNOOZ uses a proprietary fan to generate live, natural white noise that is adjustable and doesn’t disturb the surrounding air.  No looping tracks or low-quality speakers. Just the soothing sound of moving air.  As a room gets quieter your hearing becomes more acute. One of the key reasons white noise is effective is that it reduces the delta between your baseline sound and containment noise so many disturbances aren’t heard and the others sound much quieter (i.e. the “startle factor” is reduced).  SNOOZ literally smooths the bumps in the night.


As of September 21st, this project has raised around $225,000 of their $100,000 goal. This project only has 29 days left to raise as much as it can!  For a pledge of $59, you will get one Snooz machine.  For a pledge of $118, you will get two Snooz machines.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
