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
in place.

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.

This is definately one of the collest technologies I've seen developed
in the last few years.
I'd definately buy one, if I was a millionaire.

Hopefully as technology progresses the price for one of these beds,
or other floating furniture will come into a more affordable range,
or atleast below $10,000USD.


Comments, Opinions?

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.

Perhaps a Pacemaker warning too.

It doubles as a magnetic tape wiper too. I'll keep my reel to reel recording away from this baby.

Its about time stuff like this comes out.

I wonder if during wild love making, should a tether(s) break, will you be shot off at near c speeds into your bedroom wall?

Reminds me of the inventor and his creation on the last season of American Idol (ugg... I know...).

"It's... unique... interesting... and completely useless."

OOOh! AAAh!

It's pretty! And futuristic!

And, really, it'd be easy to build!

I wonder how comfortable it would be though...

Great catch-line for it I imagine - "It's sleeping on thin air..."

be cool if there were a couple of coils between the fields so that when you make whoopie the coils would move back and forth and you could hook that up to a light or something, so the more you whoopie the brighter it gets.

yup....im a dirty man
