Of course, the "Smarttress" sounds like a super-late April Fool's Day joke, but the re/code report also includes a comment from a Durmet spokesperson, confirming this thing is indeed a real product. In fact, they said the first publicly available "Smarttress" is still in the manufacturing process, and while it's unclear when they'll be up for sale, an undisclosed number of potential buyers with crippling trust issues have already expressed interest in paying $1,750, per the report. At this point, all we can say is, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Such a product inspires a lot of very important questions. Here are just a few we came up with in our initial reaction to the video: What about when your partner cheats at the other person's place? Who has sex only in bed, anyway? Why not just cameras and barbed wire? Why not just hire a private investigator? Isn't somehow secretly purchasing and installing a high-tech mattress just as deceptive? Why does it seem like the mattress is targeting primarily male victims of infidelity? Is this some sort of viral marketing product for The Jerry Springer Show? Oh, and does it have a pillow top?
