NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) -- Naps are scientifically proven to increase productivity, and Casper Mattresses have got the right idea by bringing a nap on wheels to 13 different cities throughout the U.S. The brand-new napmobile is in New Orleans at 408 Camp Street from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, July 8th.

Swing by to nod off in one of its four pods and experience the Casper mattress, sheets, and pillow firsthand.

The set up is inspired by the Japanese pod-hotels, with four pods equipped with a full sized Casper mattress and two standard pillows in each. The pod is climate controlled and offers a telephone with bedtime stories for those who have a hard time decompressing. It also has a privacy shade that makes you feel like you are in your own little room, hidden from the outside world.

"The sheets are changed after every nap, so each guest gets a fresh experience. We also give every guest of the nap tour a pillow case so they can have an entirely clean experience each time they are checking it out," explained Monica Brouwer, who leads the marketing for the Casper nap tour. "Most consumers aren't getting their 7-8 hours in the day, so the Casper nap tour provides the opportunity for you to win back a few zzz's."

The napmobile usually posts up in places of high foot traffic for people who might feel overwhelmed, such as at music festivals, and in busy business districts. And the best part, it's totally free! Get your snooze on.
