Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook has built a tiny glowing wooden gadget for his wife and he calls it the “Sleep Box”. Mark Zuckerberg Builds A “Sleep Box” Gadget For His Wife And Here’s Why
Sleep Box? Yes, Sleep Box but not a box one can literary sleep in.
Here is why Mark actually created the sleep box.
According to Mark, he has observed how his loving wife Priscilla Chan stresses herself every day trying to wake up and check on the kids. This has given her a lot of sleepless night and he created that tiny glowing wooden gadget to help her sleep well.
This what he had said in his own words:
‘being a mom is hard, and since we’ve had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night. She’ll wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can’t fall back asleep’.
So I worked on building her what I call the “sleep box”. It sits on her nightstand, and between the hours of 6-7am it emits a very faint light — visible enough that if she sees it she’ll know it’s an okay time for one of us to get the kids, but faint enough that the light won’t wake her up if she’s still sleeping.
And since it doesn’t show the time, if she wakes up in the middle of the night, she knows to just go back to sleep without having to worry about what time it is. So far this has worked better than I expected and she can now sleep through the night.
As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to express my love and gratitude. A bunch of my friends have told me they’d want something like this, so I’m putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more people.
Mark Zuckerberg I guess would be every woman’s dream husband as he solves problems even before they become something to really worry about. How would you feel if a great engineer like him was your family relative?
