The humble air mattress.
The three images are the first air mattress, a vinatge air matress, the current air mattress and also a possible air matress of the future!
I take one of these every time I go camping,
It inflates with an attachment that plugs into the cigertte lighter of the car.
And packs down nicely into a small space in my car,
When I look at it, I feel thankful that I was born in the age of plastics,
as old materials may have been more rough and bluky, and expensive,
as the air matress is rather cheap.
I take a look on the internet at old designs,
I love the colours, and the boxes,
There we such great designs back in the day.
It was used in the house, as a pool toy and then eventually for camping.

Wow I did not think they went that far back, and made of rubber.
