  • See this bed behind me? Can you guess what type of foam it uses?
  • If you guessed Memory Foam, you'd be right! It was originally developed by NASA, as a way to add more cushioning to astronauts while traveling in space crafts.
  • The special foam is much denser than other foams, allowing for it to cushion much more compared to other foams on the market.
  • It wasn't long before people realized the benefits of Memory Foam. Turns out, the material came with tons of health benefits, allowing people to achieve a much better sleep.
  • And that's not all. Even football helmets are designed with the foam inside, providing better protection for the players.
