  • Technology ends up in some very weird places.

  • Today we're going to review a very expensive pillow and this mattress for a high-tech 21st

  • century bedroom.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • So this pillow right here caught my attention on Amazon at a very expensive 300 dollars,

  • which might change in the future since technology appreciates and depreciates.

  • I'll leave a link in the video description so you can check the current pricing.

  • It's been featured at CES, started on Kickstarter, and has been reviewed by quite a few different

  • people.

  • This smart pillow has a two week battery life.

  • I never thought I'd be plugging in my pillow before.

  • I think it's time to review this from the inside.

  • There are some speakers, there's a vibration motor, and it can also keep you from snoring

  • which is pretty interesting.

  • So inside the box we have a plastic cover and then a pretty firm pillow inside.

  • It definitely has some weight to it which is a good thing.

  • It's got a free pillowcase and it has some more foam so you can adjust it and add more

  • if you need to I guess.

  • It has the wall charger, with a bunch of adapters for different countries.

  • So here's the 300 dollar pillow itself.

  • Looks like we have a wire here on the edge and you can also plug it in right here.

  • I'll take off this outer shell.

  • That's probably so you can wash it without actually having to wash the actual pillow.

  • There's another zipper right here.

  • Let's open it.

  • Oooo check it out.

  • This is a bunch of the purple foam that comes inside of the pillow.

  • I have a feeling this is going to get rather messy in here.

  • I fully expected that I would have to rip this pillow to shreds to find the electronics,

  • and I still might.

  • I don't feel any of the electronics in this pocket so we'll just close that back up.

  • Looks like there is another zipper on this side.

  • Still no electronics on this side, just a bunch more of this foam stuff.

  • We might actually have to rip it open still.

  • The good thing is that you can't really tell where the electronics are inside of it

  • because of all the padding on both sides.

  • So I mean sleeping on it, you probably won't be able to tell that it's electric.

  • Ooo I found one more zipper deep inside of it.

  • Ooo check this out, I think I got it.

  • Glad we don't have to slice things open.

  • Here are the brains of the operation.

  • Here's where it might get a little destructive.

  • Yeah, so it's got a little bit of adhesive here on this kind of memory foam stuff.

  • Yeah, this definitely isn't made to be serviced.

  • Looks like we have several speakers: one, two, three, four.

  • And we have a flexible ribbon between each of these little modules.

  • I'm going to grab a screwdriver and see if we can take these things apart.

  • I don't think I've ever done a tear down on top of a mattress before, but we have four

  • screws in each of these little modules.

  • There's also a gyroscope in here similar to what your cellphone has that can track

  • your sleep motion and wake you up at the opportune time depending on your REM cycle.

  • So now that we have the 16 screws removed, we can see all the internal components.

  • And so each of these little things right here are a little tiny speaker.

  • So there are 4 on the top and there are also 4 on the bottom part of it.

  • And I'm seeing two vibration motors on the two exterior modules right here and right

  • here.

  • I assume these go with the anti-snoring and with the alarm.

  • You know, if you start snoring like this little microphone picks up, it'll vibrate a little

  • bit waking you up just enough to stop to stop snoring and lets you fall back to sleep again

  • without actually waking you up all the way.

  • Inside of these little extenders are the wires.

  • These rubber parts just help keep the wires together.

  • Then we have the massive 5,000 milliamp battery right here in the center.

  • Pretty interesting, I never thought I would actually be tearing down a pillow on this

  • channel, but there's a first time for everything.

  • So with that snore alarm, apparently when you're snoring gets past a certain decibel

  • level, that's when the vibration motors kick on.

  • And you can set that vibration level depending on how loud you snore and when you want it

  • to kick on.

  • Overall I think it's a pretty fun idea.

  • I'm sure how many people want to spend 300 dollars on a pillow, but if you're into

  • like the high-tech environment, it might be fun.

  • It might just make a better gift for the person who has everything because I guarantee they

  • don't have this.

  • Let me know what you think.

  • Would you spend 300 dollars on a pillow even if it does do all the crazy things this one

  • does?

  • Let me know down in the comments.

  • Now let's talk about this mattress I've been sitting on.

  • This queen-size mattress was shipped to me in the mail inside a relatively small cardboard

  • box.

  • This is intriguing for multiple reasons.

  • Because it was shipped to me, it's actually cheaper than a normal old-fashioned store

  • bought mattress because those physical store locations have to pay rent, utilities, and

  • multiple locations and commission for their employees.

  • So this thing just got shipped to me and it's completely flat.

  • It's vacuum sealed right now, so I'm going to cut it open, let air inside of the plastic

  • and watch it expand.

  • Casper, on the other hand, can cut those costs out of the equation by vacuum sealing their

  • mattresses for tight storage and can pass the savings along to their customers, so that's

  • pretty coolwith free shipping.

  • Things are pretty much always cheaper on the internet.

  • This mattress was made here in the USA and it's really nice of Casper to sponsor this

  • video and support my channel.

  • I hope they don't mind too much if I show what's inside of their mattress.

  • Zippers seem to be the theme of this video.

  • So obviously we have a top layer up here that everyone can see.

  • Then we have some layers underneath that not everyone can see.

  • Looks like we have a layer of normal foam up here, and then this layer here is more

  • of a memory foam.

  • You can see it takes a second to replenish itself after I poke itwhile the rest of

  • the foam doesn't.

  • We have a transition layer here with the green foam; it has slightly larger air pockets inside

  • of it.

  • And then on the very bottom we have the support foam.

  • This is probably the heaviest and the firmest layer.

  • This 10 inch sandwich of foams is what makes the mattress so comfortable.

  • Pulling all of the air out from inside the foam is what compresses it and makes it easy

  • to ship in this modern, internet world.

  • Casper said that anyone using the codeJERRYRIGcan get a 50 dollar discount on mattress.

  • Another perk of a modern mattress is that with Casper you get a 100 night free trial.

  • If you don't like the mattress during those 100 days, you can ship it back to Casper with

  • that free shipping.

  • I'll put a link in the video description.

  • With an average of 4.8 stars on both Amazon and Google reviews, the mattress pretty much

  • speaks for itself; you don't have to take my word for it.

  • Sometimes I think random technology is the most interesting kind of technology so if

  • you liked this video, hit that subscribe button, and thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.

Technology ends up in some very weird places.
