SLEEPING, CONTINUED: The Cuddle Mattress

Continuing our ongoing focus on sleeping  related designs (perhaps especially relevant given our return to school this week) I thought I’d share this cuddle-icous design:

From NPR’s Weekly Innovation Blog:

“Mehdi Mojtabavi just wants to cuddle. But his arm would start to fall asleep, and he’d have to roll over. So Mojtabavi came up with the Cuddle Mattress, which allows you to slip your arm down into the mattress and around your partner. (Watch the demo video.)

Essentially the Cuddle Mattress divides the upper and lower portions of the bed into a series of slats. Side sleepers can wedge their arm — or stomach sleepers can wedge their feet — in between these slats. Each slat has a firm and a soft side, which you can flip depending on your sleeping preference. The slats come in three different materials: latex, polyurethane or polyurethane memory foam. The mattress also comes with its own stretchable, fitted sheets.”

 

Keep an eye out for an upcoming Kickstarter/ Indiegogo campaign to obtain your very own!
