Crowdfunded smartpatch aims to put snoring to bed

A device which could reduce the sound of snoring is set to launch this year.

The Silent Partner smartpatch works using noise cancelling technology often found in headphones. A counter sound to the snore is emitted from the device cancelling out the sound of the snoring itself - in theory giving sleeping partners a better night's rest.

The product debuted on a crowdfunding website and raised over £265,000 ($380,000) in its campaign.

Production on the smartpatch will begin later this year after further testing.

BBC Click spoke to Netanel Eyal who came up with the idea for the device.
