Need a reason to go to bed instead of staying up and watching one (read: four) more episode of Game of Thrones? If you worked at Crazy, Inc, a Japanese wedding planning company, you would have a pretty good one: Money.


The company uses smart mattresses to track employees' sleep cycles. If workers get six hours of shuteye, five nights a week, they can earn "points" to spend on things like food in the office—and those points can stack up to be worth $570 a year, according to Bloomberg. Making money while you sleep? Not too shabby.


How much sleep are you getting a night? Would you want to work for a company that was tracking your sleep? Tuck yourself into the comments.
