It used to be that an inflatable bed was an inflatable bed. There wasn't much to distinguish one from another. But with all the advances in recent years you can pick the features that make you most comfortable and find a selection of beds that fit you, for instance, soft flocked tops, raised beds, gripping underneath, or dual air chambers. These are all great features to have to give you a comfortable nights rest.
But with all these features becoming more common place can you find something that will give you something a little bit more? Enter air mattresses with some high tech features.
The first, and more common, feature that a lot of companies are utilizing these days is a built in air pump. Having a separate pump can be a bit of a hassle--it's bulky, making your portable mattress a little bit less portable. The built in pump takes up less space, and gives you less to keep track of. It simplifies an already pretty easy process.
For something a bit more fun, however, there is a new option with an alarm clock built in, which is an extremely convenient and practical feature. For a bit more fun there is a bed with a MP3 speakers built in. You can plug in your MP3 player, or iPod, and listen to your favorite songs while resting. These are fairly new features that will probably become more common place with time, but currently they are features that are setting these products apart from the competition. Both are available for under a hundred dollars, so they're an affordable option, too.
If you're going to be using these products for guests it can be really fun to throw down a bed for your guest, who is expecting a typical inflatable bed, and then show them they can plug in their music or set up their alarm clock. These features add a bit of fun to an otherwise unexciting event.
Once you've narrowed down your options by comfort, which is of course the most important thing when looking at inflatable beds, consider some more fun and convenient high tech features for air mattresses.
