New York company Casper has created Napmobile-a modern trailer that tours around American cities and invites people to try out different mattresses without having to go to the store. The company teamed up with IDEO and NASA to design mattresses made from CertiPUR-US, foam which is completely free of flame retardants. The foam is enclosed in a fire-retardant knit sock and is Oeko-Tex certified. The sock is made from a yarn that has a silica core wrapped in a blend of polyester, acrylic, nylon and rayon.

Now the company is taking their design on the road. People living in Boston, New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Nashville, Atlanta and Miami will have a chance to climb into the cozy nap rooms to test the mattresses.
