A young Dutch architect has created a floating bed which hovers
above the ground through magnetic force and comes with a price
tag of 1.2 million euros ($1.54 million).
Magnets built into the floor and into the bed itself repel each other,
pushing the bed up into the air. Thin steel cables tether the bed
Although people with piercings should have no problem sleeping on
the bed, Ruijssenaars advises them against entering the magnetic
field between the bed and the floor. They could find their piercing
suddenly tugged toward one of the magnets.

Dr. Rujinsaars may have thought up the idea, but no way am I paying a million bucks for one. My back to dorm shopping trip to the H depotwill now include two layers of magnets the size of my twin. Oh yeeaaahhh.
