Do you need a robot to get to sleep?

Did you sleep well? If not, you're not alone. Studies suggest one in three of us aren't getting enough shut-eye. A 24-hour work culture, as well as all those hours spent in front of a screen, have caused an epidemic of sleeplessness to sweep across populations. Perhaps a robot could help.
Dutch entrepreneur and robotics graduate Julian Jagtenberg has created a companion that promises to help you get a decent night's sleep. It's soft, weighs about as much as a cat and breathes like a baby. The idea came to him three years ago when his mother was suffering from chronic insomnia. Frustrated that her doctors were only offering her sleeping pills, he set about finding a solution.
