O founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, shared with his followers on Instagram his latest invention created for the woman, Priscilla Chan. The invention is just a wooden box that emits a little light – the 'Sleep Box' – but it seems to serve its purpose very well.
"[A caixa] is on the bedside table and between 6 and 7 in the morning emits a very weak light – visible enough that if you see her, tell her that it is a good time for one of us to raise the children, but weak enough so that you wake up in the middle of the night, know that you can go back to sleep without having to worry about the hours. So far it has turned out better than I was expecting and she can sleep through the night, "read the publication.
Zuckerberg also says creating a device to help Chan sleep "is one of the best ways to express love and gratitude." The invention was shared on social networks if "some entrepreneur wants to build more sleep boxes for more people."

Being a mom is hard, and since we've had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night. She will wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can not fall back asleep. So I worked on building what I called the "sleep box". It sits on her nightstand, and between the hours of 6-7am it emits a very faint light – visible enough that if she sees it she'll know it's okay time for one of us to get the kids, but faint enough that the light will not wake her up if she's still sleeping. And since it does not show the time, if she wakes up in the middle of the night, she knows how to just go back to sleep without having to worry about what time it is. So far this has worked better than I expected and she can now sleep through the night. I can think of to express my love and gratitude. A bunch of my friends have told me they'd want something like this, so I'm putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more people!
