Mark Zuckerberg Reveals His New Big Invention that Helps His Wife Sleep Better
It pays to have a genius for a husband. This may have been a huge thought that crossed Priscilla Chan’s mind, when her husband, Mark Zuckerberg, invented a novel device to help her get enough sleep at night. And where else to show off his new invention but on the social media platform he founded? Zuckerberg shared his latest invention, named the Sleep Box, on Facebook. It has been effective in helping his wife get adequate shut eye needed for a working mom.
Zuckerberg may be worth billions today, but his wife still practices pediatric medicine, plus she is a very active philanthropist. The Facebook founder empathizes that motherhood as really tiring, especially with two kids around. He relates his wife finds it hard to get enough sleep because of their two young children.
Ever since the couple had their kids — 3-year-old Maxima and 1-year-old August, Priscilla developed a bad sleeping habit. The pediatrician had the habit of checking her phone to look at the time whenever she woke up in the middle of the night. But the knowledge of the time stressed her out, so she couldn’t go back to sleep. After noticing the hands-on mom’s sleep dilemma, Zuckerberg came up with this brand new invention, the Sleep Box.
The small wooden box works like a lamp shade. It emits a dim light between the hours of 6 am to 7 am. The light is very faint and it’s how Zuckerberg meant it to be. When Priscilla wakes up and sees the light from the Sleep Box on, she knows that it’s too early to wake up. But in case his wife does not wake up in the middle of the night to check, the faint light won’t bother her so she can continue sleeping.
The father of two is proud to say his new invention worked, now Priscilla is able to get the sleep she deserves at night. He continued by saying he is putting the Sleep Box out there in case people are interested to build many of these products to market to other moms and non-moms who just need some good sleep.
