As with anything in life, there is a notable and remarkable difference between a man and a woman’s sleeping habits, as show in this infographic from Jawbone. From the time we prepare ourselves for bed, to the time we wake up, to the choices of pillows, sheet counts and mattresses, to our sleepwear preferences, to the the things we want to do best while in bed — these are all defined by our gender. And yet, we’re probably the only species on Earth who can sleep together well next to another human being.
This sleeping pod is probably not for those with claustrophobia, but for anyone else looking to have different kind of sleep experience, this would be all sorts of appealing. Designed as a tube, this bed (or pod, as it is more aptly called) is made using polycarbonate material and frosted glass. The purpose of such a pod is so that it blocks off noise from the outside, thus enabling one to sleep better.

Pranks and scare tactics are trending these days because it’s the Halloween season. On the internet, we found this video of someone who made use of an old mattress to scare unsuspecting people passing by a lowly street corner. You would think this mattress was just something that wasn’t properly disposed of, but wait till you see what it really does! As with any prank, the result is pretty funny, and a bit scary too.
Artists François-Xavier Lalanne and Claude Lalanne of the duo Les Lalanne have been working together since the mid-1950’s and came up with their first ever furniture sculpture exhibit called the Zoophites in 1964. The project was a display of unconventional pieces that were mostly inspired by animal and nature and among these was this Cocodoll by François-Xavier Lalanne.
Anyone raising kids will understand how hard it is to let children go to bed. Sometimes, it’s really a monumental struggle and it’s usually the adult caving in to pressure first. But maybe this wouldn’t be such a problem if families with kids have this pull-apart pillow that will make the routine of going to sleep a lot more fun and interesting.
Are you still sleeping on a conventional mattress that’s made of polyurethane foam? Is your memory foam mattress off-gassing or is it made from synthetic materials? If you say yes to these questions, you could be sleeping in a mattress filled with chemicals that increase your body’s vulnerability to toxic substances. These chemicals are derived from petroleum based products that have VOCs or volatile organic compounds.
This mattress comes with a sturdy foundation, but because it also has gel memory foam structure, it provides a softer, cooler sleeping space that allows the body to sink in better than the average memory foam. Its firmness is comparable to a spring mattress. The bounce back rate is also faster, which means that if you are prone to back problems, you can enjoy the best of soft and firm mattress conditions.
