The cradle lets the user fall into a gentle sleep by using binaural sounds that naturally relax the brain. Additional light elements create an immersive environment.

We researched the topic of not being able to fall asleep. The results indicate that people find certain sounds relaxing to fall asleep to. We considered the use of binaural sounds as part of the design to naturally relax the brain and evoke a feeling of tiredness. After researching binaural sounds, frequencies and their effect on sleep we concluded that it is crucial to develop a surround sound environment.

The two speaker elements need to be situated on the left and right side of the user to evoke the full binaural sound effect.
