Budizzz: A new approach to children’s bedtime routines @ CES 2024

Budizzz bedtime routineBudizzz, a company specializing in sleep technology, has developed a distraction-free device designed to improve sleep quality and promote mental wellness. The device provides a routine free from distractions and harmful blue lights, offering a healthier alternative to using tablets or smartphones before bed.

Distraction-free device for better sleep

The Budizzz device works by synchronizing with a crowdsourced library of content. Users can customize their preferred content, such as breathing techniques, bedtime stories, and calming sounds, to create a routine that promotes relaxation and better sleep. The device is designed for both adults and children.

The device emphasizes the importance of mental health and the need for mindfulness practices, such as breathing techniques, to improve focus and reduce distractions. It also highlights the importance of quality sleep for both children and adults.

The technology behind the device is app-driven, but the creators wanted to disconnect the device from the app. Users can use the app independently, which offers a crowdsourced library of content from around the world. It allows users to set up a routine that includes various sounds and activities, such as breathing techniques, bedtime stories, and gratitude practices. In the morning, the device wakes users up with a body scan and guides them through gratitude practices, ensuring a positive start to the day.

The device offers crowdsource content focused on sleep and mindfulness, contributed by professionals. The revenue generated from the device is shared with these professionals, creating a collaborative and socially responsible project. The device also plans to incorporate AI sleep tracking to provide users with insights into their sleep quality and offer personalized routines for better sleep.

The story behind the device

Sylwia Regulska Guney is the founder of Budizzz, and her inspiration for creating the device came from her own experience as a parent. She noticed that her son often played games on his tablet instead of engaging in activities that promote mindfulness. After her son participated in a mindfulness course, Sylwia recognized the positive impact it had on him and decided to create a device that combines mindfulness practices with better sleep routines.

Sylwia has seen positive changes in her own children after using the device. Her son has become more mindful and aware of his emotions, using breathing techniques to calm himself down. She also mentions the impact of sleep on children’s behavior and emphasizes the importance of bedtime routines for a better day ahead.

Conclusion: A screen-free way to sleep easier

Budizzz was in prototype phase during CES 2024, but has since hit the market. It is available from the company’s website. It is important to note that all prices are in Turkish Lira, but a United States shopping experience is an option (though the pricing and language stay the same)unknown. The price as of current exchange rates is about $65 with shipping costing around $21.

In conclusion, the distraction-free device for better sleep aims to promote mental wellness and improve sleep quality. By providing a routine free from distractions and harmful blue lights, the device offers a healthier alternative to using tablets or smartphones before bed. With its crowdsource library of content and AI sleep tracking, the device aims to provide users with a personalized and effective solution for better sleep and overall well-being.

Lazy Moose wants to make NFTs accessible for fundraising @ CES 2022

Lazy Moose NFTsSchool fundraising needs to evolve along with the times and can also be a fantastic educational opportunity on crypto. Not only do a lot of options available take large fees but aren’t available in the global market. Lazy Moose is the future of NFT school fundraising and educational opportunities.

What are NFTs?

NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens are a form of non-interchangeable data stored on the blockchain. This differs from Bitcoin in that each token is uniquely identifiable. NFT data may be associated with a variety of file types including video, images, audio, and hyperlinks. NFTs claim to offer a public ledger, but this claim has not been legally verified. NFTs do not restrict the sharing of the underlying content and cannot prevent the creation of another NFT with identical content.

NFTs have the potential to revolutionize how we interact with digital content. For example, imagine being able to own a piece of digital art that is unique and cannot be replicated. NFTs could also be used to create online marketplaces for digital assets, similar to eBay or Amazon. It is important to note that NFTs are still in their early stages and there are a number of challenges that need to be addressed before they can be widely adopted. For example, NFTs do not currently have a built-in mechanism for verification and authentication. This means that it is possible for someone to create a fake NFT and pass it off as the real thing.

What is Lazy Moose?

Lazy Moose seeks to connect schools with artists and developers in order to mint NFTs for fundraising or educational purposes. This collaborative effort can allow for a wide variety of projects, ranging from the development and minting of NFTs directly by students, or working with Lazy Moose to create an NFT for fundraising purposes. Lazy Moose is still actively developing relationships with artists, developers, athletics programs, and companies.

Imagine that you’re a teacher in charge of a high school robotics team. A season can be incredibly expensive, but fundraising can be a real challenge. Printing collectible items is expensive and time-consuming, but fans might actually want something to remember the season by. This is where Lazy Moose can come in. Rather than creating physical collectibles, you could instead mint NFTs to sell to fans, family, and booster clubs.

For example, if your team wins an award at a competition, you could mint NFTs representing the award itself. Then, those who are supportive could purchase that NFT to remember the season by. With Twitter’s new NFT integration for profile pictures, students could even set it as their profile picture in a hexagon, indicating that it’s real. This gives students and mentors the ability to support the team while also showing that support off online, hopefully bringing in additional supporters.


Lazy Moose is a startup that, like its namesake chordate mammal is burdened with a noble purpose. Bringing crypto-education and fundraising to people around the world. To learn more about Lazy Moose please visit the company’s website.
