If you’re one of those folks who needs white noise to fall asleep, you’re going to love the Sonic Bed. The bed’s elevated wooden frame is accessed via steps, and once inside, bed-goers are immersed in sound via six subwoofers and eight speakers. The bed’s creator—artist Kaffe Matthews and the Music for Bodies project—says the bed has 12 channels of independent sound, which basically takes the idea of surround sound and turns it into a whole new ball of wax.
Unfortunately, the Sonic Bed isn’t going to be in your master bedroom anytime soon. The bed is part of an ongoing arts project, so you’ll have to check out upcoming exhibitions if you want to get your sonic sleep on. Of course, if you’ve got the time, money and inspiration, you could always hook up your own mattress-driven surround system. (Hmm ... I think I’ve got a weekend project.)
