5. Sapapa Bedmate System
Not your ordinary bed, the Sapapa Bedmate System features a hydraulic or electronic lift system, thermoplastic storage, integrated 19-inch LCD display, DVD/CD player, and even a Sony PlayStation.
The mattress is made with an “advanced physical spring system” and a “viscojel” material, said to help provide the right amount of support to the sensitive part of your spinal cord
4. iPod Bed
DesignMobel has created the world’s first iPod compatible bed — called the “Pause”. It features an integrated iPod dock and can accomodate a Bose Speaker Systen. The bed is crafted from solid New Zealand Rimu with aluminium detailing.
“The resulting design incorporates functionality that lets your mood guide the pace; quiet time or play time.”
3. $25,900 Luxury TV Bed
Priced at a whopping $25,900, this luxury bed has a 22-inch flat screen TV that rises up at the press of a button. That’s not all, it also features a built-in electronic leveling system. For those with money to spare, here’s the product page. [Source]
2. Folding Computer Bed
For around $2079, you could buy this nifty folding computer bed. It features gas pistons which assist in the bed to desk transformation and also dampens the natural action of weight transfer. Check it out here.
The Computer Bed seems a bit pricey for a few pieces of unfinished wood and a twin-sized mattress that is most likely not Tempurpedic, but considering that you probably don’t have the proper tools in your cramped little apartment to build your own, this may be the only solution.
1. $150k Magnetically Levitating Bed
According to Dutch-site Revu, the world’s first “floating magnetically levitating bed” (scale model) has been unveiled at the Miljonaire fair in Kortrijk. One drawback, it’s priced at a whopping $149,969 (115,000 Euros). [Source]
