Electric blankets are dumb; they only have modes that people can't correlate to temperatures. Your body, your house, and your comfort levels also change temperature throughout the night, sometimes causing uncomfortable wake-ups and insufficient sleep.

This blanket is connected to the cloud and to your phone. It will turn off before your alarm goes off to help you wake up, and can prevent you from getting burned... An android app is used to control the temperature settings and monitor your blanket temperatures throughout the night.

This hack is powered by Intel's Edison Module with an Arduino slave for servo control. The blanket was originally an electric blanket, taken apart and hacked into one that can adjust temperature.
