Mattress Firm, a specialty mattress store, is launching what is touted as the first air conditioned bed. Called the YuMe™, this mattress has a control system that helps with cooling and heating of the mattress.
The mattress has been launched in the State Fair of Texas in Dallas last September and it will be there until October 17th.
The mattress adopt technology that is developed by Amerigon and Sleep, Inc. The mattress features a similar technology found in luxury cars. It is made of high end foam with coconut oil, allowing for breathability. With this, you don’t have to heat up or cool down the entire room, just to sleep comfortably. You can do that with just the bed, thus reducing carbon emission.
According to VP for Development of Mattress Firm: “We explored multiple innovative options before developing something truly unique for our customers.We are excited to offer a product that not only pushes the bedding industry, but addresses a significant factor in the sleep environment. Studies show that the right temperature can help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer and get better quality sleep.”
