Nintendo has filed a patent for its upcoming sleep monitor device as it moves forward with its new "quality of life" initiative.

The patent, courtesy of NeoGAF, provides an early look at the device, which appears to be about the size of an alarm clock, and comes equipped with a docking station, speakers, and a ceiling projector.

According to the patent's description, "This information processing system comprises a portable terminal," which "detects sensor information for assessing a user's emotions." The device is designed to "assesses the user's emotions on the basis of the sensor information," and is detected when the terminal is in standby mode.

The patent also notes that "it would be permissible, as an example, for the sensor information to be sound information which is detected by a microphone, or image information which is captured by a camera."

The sensors are designed to detect the user's pulse rate, temperature, and other related body measurements, at which point the data is uploaded to Nintendo's servers so that a sleep score can be calculated. Then, using the device's projector, the results are displayed on the ceiling.

It is unclear whether the device plugged into the docking station in the provided images is a Nintendo product or simply the user's phone.

While Nintendo has been tight-lipped on its "quality of life" initiative as of late, the company is expected to release its new health-minded device in 2016, so we're sure to hear more information soon.
