The Daily Mail reports the Aura bio-clock by manufacture Withings, monitors one's sleeping throughout the night including breathing and heart rates and body movements.

Based off the analysis of one's sleeping patterns through the night, the Aura bio-clock will wake a person up when the body is ready to woken.

The alarm clock prepares the sleeper as morning approaches and also helps a person fall asleep through the light on the clock that changes colors.

The clock is set to be sold for nearly 300 hundred dollars.  It's expected to be available come spring in Britain.
