Luna is a smart mattress cover that enables your bed to track a host of metrics about the way you sleep, and its makers broke their $100,000 funding target just six hours into the month-long campaign.

The smart cover can manage the temperature of your bed, act as a smart alarm and sleep tracker.

It’s clear from the immensely successful launch that there’s a hunger for better sleep tracking, and as we’ve revealed in over reviews and round-ups of the best sleep monitors, manufacturers are still to make their smart tech useful and actionable.

The Luna looks as if it’s addressed that problem, and solving real problems like bed temperature control have undoubtedly captured the imagination of consumers

A Luna smart bed cover is retailing for $179 for a full-size model via the Indiegogo page that, as is the vogue these days, acts as an ordering system more than a funding platform.
