Working at Dreem is pretty great, rarely a day goes by where you don’t learn something new. So we decided to spread the love and take you behind the scenes to meet some of the Dreem Team. Starting with Kaveh, Head of Hardware Electronics Design
So Kaveh, how does Dreem pack so much electronics into one wearable device?
“Thanks to a bunch of recent research and development on nano-electronic technology and MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) sensors, today’s wearable devices can bring advanced technology even closer to individuals.
Year after year, embedded electronics are becoming more efficient, smaller, and less power-hungry. It means that they work on a more independent scale, like on a person’s fitness tracker or sleep wearable. Today’s wearables are always “on.” Health monitoring applications, sports trackers, and navigation systems are constantly measuring and gathering data behind the scenes. So whenever the wearer wants to access, the device is ready.
Focus on great efficiency and a positive user experience
When it comes to the Dreem headband, we really focus on greater efficiency and a positive user experience. In engineering the device, we gathered the most advanced technologies — from computation power, high-resolution measurement of the brain, heart, and body, wireless connectivity, power efficiency — and squished them into one tiny package.
It sounds tough to pack that all in, but I’ll give you an example. The electronic design of the Dreem headband is divided into two simple parts. First, the ultra-low power computation module. It provides computing power at a small scale that still packs as big of a punch as any smartphone on the market. And second, the ultra-low noise acquisition module. It measures brain activity during sleep. All this technology enables us to acquire and process data in real time and in a safe and non-invasive way.
Keeping the device efficient but still powerful comes from leveraging the latest technology on the market. A super smart team that knows how to work with it helps too! We may have ironically lost some sleep along the way though…
