How it started
Four robotic engineers with an idea
Seeing first hand what the consequences were of severe sleep deprivation on our loved ones, we wanted to help. As four robotic engineers, we came up with the first idea of a Sleep Robot; a solution that could help our family and friends sleep better, without having to worry about the unpleasant side effects of sleep medication.
Time to solve some serious problems
After building many prototypes and receiving more and more requests from people who wanted to try our Sleep Robot, we decided to launch a kickstarter.
Let’s break some Kickstarter limits
It turned out to be a hit. After running a successful Kickstarter campaign we partnered up with Royal Auping, Europe’s leading mattress manufacturer, to bring our product to life.
Bringing the world better sleep
After months of research and hard work, we sold our first Somnox Sleep Robots at the beginning of 2019. Now we hope to realize our dream of helping millions of people sleep better with our products.
Join our team
Since 2016 Somnox has grown into an enthusiastic team with a mission; to make the superpower of sleep naturally accessible to everyone.
Sounds like you? We’re always looking for bright and talented people to join us.
