Amazon will now be able to monitor your dreams. Well, something like that. As reported by Bloomberg , the company obtained permission from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to develop an apparatus that can monitor people's sleep using radar.

The FCC said in its approval document that Google made a similar request in 2018 for its Pixel smartphone.
Amazon had requested permission last month to market "non-mobile devices" that use "radar sensors" and "would operate at higher power levels than currently allowed," according to CBS News . In its request, the ecommerce company said the device "could help improve consumers' awareness and management of sleep hygiene."
It is not the first device to monitor sleep on the market. Apple Watch and FitBit can track sleep when you wear it to sleep.
