Sleep... it's one of the things that we just can't seem to get enough of these days. However, a company called Technogel wants you to fall asleep the moment you lay down.
The Technogel Vive mattress is, simply put, the most comfortable bed we have ever touched. It's hard to put into words how soft yet supportive it is.
Technogel is all the best sleeping technologies in one luscious mattress: foam, latex, and gel. This glorious trifecta is the best thing in layering since the invention of the tres leches cake.
What makes the Vive so special? The foam, latex, and gel combo conforms to your body and has high thermal conductivity. Basically, it feels like you're floating. The mattress follows the contours of your body to keep pressure points from forming, while high thermal conductivity prevents the surface from heating up. The end result is a bed that's not too hard, not too soft, not too hot, and not too cold.
The price is pretty steep: $8,000 for the highest-end and most comfortable model. That price point puts it about on par with the Sleep Number X12. The X12 is designed with a smart technology that monitors your sleep patterns. Having lain on both, we'd rather pay for a more comfortable bed than a more technologically advanced one.
The Technogel bed probably costs more than all the beds in your house combined, but study after study has shown that Americans aren't getting enough sleep. The fact is, shuteye is essential for your health, and a good mattress is a good start.
