Did you know the average person spends one-third of their life sleeping? That’s a lot of zzz’s! Wouldn’t it be great if we could use this time to not only improve our physical health and well-being but to expand our minds at the same time?

Think about how much more productive you could be if you were actually learning while you were sleeping. Counting Cloudy the Goats, not sheep…

Don’t dream it, be it!

Now, you don’t have to waste time dreaming of your next job or promotion, you can finally achieve your goals through dreaming — literally! From the makers of Trailhead, we’re proud to introduce…Trailbed, the world’s first connected learning platform bed! Through our patented thought-recognition technology, the Trailhead profile of your dreams can be yours while you get all the beauty sleep you need.

Dreamforce was the inspiration. We thought, “How can we literally make people’s dreams come true?” The answer was so obvious. Whereas our mission to Mars last year added 40 minutes to your day, Trailbed can add eight hours plus of extra learning and earning to your night.

“I was burning the midnight oil, four, five nights a week. Then I got the Trailbed. Now instead of burning, I’m learning, AND earning.”
— Brad “Bedhead” Gottesman

Put your REM to work

Just as memory foam is all about providing the best sleep possible, our Trailbeds are made of “memory-encoding foam.” You’ll benefit from the most productive sleep without losing any of the comfort. The top secret, mind-bending technology behind Trailbed helps focus your REM, the stage of sleep when you’re actively dreaming.

Instead of dreaming random, weird stuff like flying with a goat or conversing with a cloud, Trailbed borrows proven hacks from lucid dreaming so you can subconsciously redirect your restful sleep into effective learning.

This means, after you curl up under your Astro blankie in Trailbed, you’ll wake up not only feeling refreshed but with a refreshed profile too. Who cares about bedhead when you’ve got Trailbed? You’ll start your day with your online resume looking so sharp, you won’t even care about your hair!

And for those who like to catch 40 winks while on the go (or in the office), there’s the Trailbed Go neck pillow. Transcontinental flight? Cozy up with Trailbed Go and land in another time zone, with badges galore. Got some downtime between meetings? Get down with Trailbed Go and wake up, skilled up!

“It’s the fastest path from idea to nap and vice versa!”
— Sofia “Snoozin” Rodriguez Mata

Sleeping is winning

And as if this news wasn’t big enough, we’re also giving you the chance to fall asleep with Astro! All you have to do is complete any Trailhead badge (sleeping or not) between March 30, 2018­ 12:00 a.m. PT — April 9, 2018 11:59 p.m. PT for a chance to win a set of exclusive Astro bedding*.
