Over a decade ago, Todd and Tara Youngblood were tired of being tired. Utilizing Tara’s art experience in science, they began to look for an answer. Most of the products they found, however, didn’t solve the problem.
Determined to sleep better, Tara turned to her background in science. Three hundred or so books and two thousand articles later, it became clear that temperature-controlled sleep was the answer. VLPO Neurons in the brain, are a sleep switch and they are triggered by temperature.
Todd’s background in sales and product development was a perfect pairing to Tara’s scientific acumen, and together they began to produce their own products.
Todd’s passion for sleep went deeper than most, as his uncle was the inventor of the waterbed and an inspiration for including water in their solution. After years perfecting the product, driven by thermodynamics to match thermal load to cooling sleep, Chili was born.
Chili, a brand of Kryo Inc., is the result of Todd and Tara enlisting some of the most knowledgeable and hardest working people in the business to make their vision come alive.
