The Spanish designers of a new smart mattress, dubbed the 'Smarttress', claim their invention can tell you when your partner is being unfaithful.

According to Re/code, the Smarttress bed's 'lover detection system' uses vibration sensors and contact zone detectors to tell if someone is on your bed when they're not supposed to be.

If the system detects activity, it notifies you via an app.

The app displays the movement's location and visualises its intensity and per-minute impact.

Engineer Ivan Miranda told the Daily Telegraph that the device can tell the difference between the activity of sexual intercourse, or, say, a dog jumping on the bed. "If it detects suspicious activity regarding time of use, frequency, intensity or speed, it sends a notification to the phone terminal with which it is linked," said Miranda.

The device will cost around £1,200 (about R26 000) the Daily Telegraph reported.

In a promotional video featured on the Smarttress website,Durmet, the company behind the Smarttress, say they designed the bed because of Spain's high level of adultery.
