The Zeez Sleep Pebble is the creation of Zeez Technology Ltd, founded by Anna McKay and Steve. Walpole.
Steve was an IBM engineer in the early days of personal computing and began to work on electro-magnetic devices in 1981, after an accident left him with 23 fractures, head injury, nightmares, and insomnia, and few prospects. He went on to invent devices to treat migraine, Multiple Sclerosis and Chronic Fatigue including the Empulse, TriMed and Enermed, all of which were trialled and sold in the early 90s in the UK and Canada. Anna persuaded him to work on sleep. You could say that this was an awakening.
Anna is was head of I.P. at a niche firm of solicitors whose clients were mainly involved in biotech and pharma. She was known for patent litigation, with a string of successful cases. She loves to do stuff that is really hard, and attacking big pharma’s patents for relatively small clients, on ridiculously tight time scales – well, it just wasn’t hard enough…Fortunately, working on the Zeez Sleep Pebble has been.
Pascoe designed the Zeez Sleep Pebble. Not only is he a wonderful designer, who listens, but he also really understands industrial processes and the demands of manufacture. A man who knows that less is more, and why. http://pascoelintell.com

Packaging design, digital design, prototype manufacture. He’s creative and practical, and get’s it, whether “it” is pouring silicon or conquering WordPress.
Our development partner. We wouldn’t go anywhere else. So glad to have avoided long hard flights to NIngbo and Bangalore. The train to Diss is much more pleasant. http://www.barric.co.uk

Why have we worked with AT Power, which makes precision parts for sports cars and planes? Because they have been totally brilliant, doing all sorts of intricate jobs as we wrestled with the technical difficulties of making the Zeez Sleep Pebble. Thanks Chris. http://www.atpower.com
