The Art Of Sleep




Every single person on this planet must sleep. In fact, you will spend about one third of your life in bed (that's around 30 years!) . Yet the bed you sleep on probably cost you less than your first car.  With that thought in mind, I present you with the top 5 most exotic beds available today.

Number 5: The Mile High Bed
Calling all flight enthusiast! The bed is designed and fabricated from two DC-9 rear stabilizers and a C-130 inner flap. All surfaces are sanded and mirror polished, and it's accented by Plexiglass and illuminated with internal LED lighting. $35,000 will get you into the mile high owners club.
Final Thoughts: Really? You know you could actually buy a working airplane for less, right?


Number 4: Transport Pod
Although the name would suggest otherwise, this bed doesn't actually transport you to the moon, or anywhere else for that matter. Handmade out of a glass fiber composit the bed fetures a thermostat controlled water bed,  and integrated LED ambient lighting that can be programed to pulse and change color.  Nucleus Micro speakers complimented by a sub-woofer offering iPod connectivity ensure that you’re beautifully cocooned from the stresses and strains of your day. A word of caution: prepared to rack up major stress points as you fork over $16,000.
Final Thoughts: If your on a tight budget, use duck tape to attach Christmas lights to your current bed for a similar effect. 

Number 3: BedUP

Optimesed for space efficency, the Bed Up neatly moters up and into your celing when you arent sleeping, freeing up space, and lending a clean, progresive feel to your room. The bottome of the bed fetures recesed lighting that can be activated when the bed is up to iluminate the room. As exotic beds go, this one is a steal at only $4300. (plus installation)

Final Thoughts: I'll take one in iPod white please.

Number 2: The Quantum Sleeper
The Quantum Sleeper is a bed designed for people who aren't safe, even in the comfort of their own bedroom. Equipped with a microwave, TV, radio, and toilet (no, thats not a typo) this hermetically sealed bed completely separates its occupants from the outside world. A state of the art air filtration system keeps the air in the hermetically sealed enclosure free from bio-hazards, while aluminum and and 1.25 in. poly-carbonate panels stop any bullet directed inside. Other features include exterior motion detection, air contamination/ co2 detection, emergency communication system (cellular, CB and Short Wave radio), an  intercom system, a touch screen control panel, and its own power generating system. Oh, did i mention its also water tight? Of course, this unparalleled level of safety isn't free, prices start around $160,000. Click here for official web site.
Final thoughts: The ultimate in 'safe-sex' technology.

Number 1: Magnetic Floating Bed
Designed by Dutchman Janjaap Ruijssenaars, this magnetic floating bed has enough magnets to keep 1,984 pounds floating in the air. To make sure that the bed doesn’t float away because of hard wind or weird movements, it tethered to the walls by four cables. Make your check payable in the amount of $1.53 million.
Final thoughts: So wait? Does that include the mattress?
