Eight, the startup formerly known as Luna, announced today that it has raised $6 million in Series A funding.
The company makes a smart mattress cover that can track your sleep, change temperature (the temperature can even vary across different parts of the cover) and send data to other Internet-connected devices. It says it has sold 6,000 units through crowdfunding and pre-orders.
Co-founder and CEO Matteo Franceschetti said many of those pre-orders come from people who don’t want to wear sleep-tracking devices: “A lot of people using wearables don’t want to use wearables in the night. We are the complementary device that they were missing till now.”
