Google's got a new nest hub that sees you when you're sleeping well. It doesn't actually see there's no camera it just monitors and tracks. Radar - the new power comes from within it’s packing, google tried out this radar feature on their pixel 4 phones and now they're bringing it into the smart home the idea is that this radar is going to be able to sense 3d motion without a camera.
Second generation nest hub doesn't have a camera it just uses solely to be able to tell if you're tossing or turning and it has gesture controls as well so you'll be able to tap the air in front of the device to play or pause you'll be able to wave your hand to snooze in the morning but what solely is really trying to do on the new nest hub is sense how you're sleeping it's going to use solely to sense if you're tossing and turning throughout the night. Nest Hub able to track that and then in the morning you're going to be able to ask hey how did i sleep and you'll be able to see it tracked over time to see when you were restless and when you were soundly out.
Nest Hub use sensors such as light and sound sensors to maybe understand the factors that led to your deeper sleeps or the moments when you weren't out as cold and those sound sensors are also going to be able to tell if you coughed or were snoring now this raises some privacy concerns obviously but google has promised they're not going to use any of this data to sell you ads and for the sound stuff in particular google is going to process.
All of that information locally the motion and other info will be sent to the cloud so you can check it and track it using the google fit app as well as the device and then google is going to use all of that tracked info along with research from the american academy of sleep medicine to give you knowledge about how you can sleep better.
