New 'smart bed' tells parents whether their child is having a good night's sleep

Is this smart bed the answer to all parents' dreams?

The Sleep IQ bed claims to guarantee mums and dads peace of mind by letting them know when their child is asleep – or when they've gone walkabout in the middle of the night.

It's also adjustable to give tossing and turning kids a more comfy slumber.

The bed, made by Sleep Number in Minneapolis, was unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

It's said to be the only one in the world that adjusts with children as they grow.

The quality of their sleep is measured by sensors integrated in the bed, which monitor their presence, average breathing rate, heart rate and movement. It uses a full-body algorithm to assess quality of sleep.

They are given a SleepIQ score for each night's sleep, which parents can see using an accompanying app.
