OK… I love referencing the Craftmatic. In my speech as well as in my dreams, I put this bed up on a pedestal for all other furniture pieces to admire—until now.
Leggett & Platt have come up with the Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed, which could make all other beds look and feel like you’re sleeping on a cardboard box.
It’s got this creepy thing where it watches your sleep, checks your breathing patterns and helps reduce your snoring during the night—possibly by smothering you slightly with a pillow. Seriously, who would know?
The cool factor, however, lies in its ability to heat or cool its separate sides from 68 to 117 degrees, the 2,500-watt surround sound system, an iPod dock, a 1080p LCD-based projector, a digital video recorder, and has 1.5TB of storage for 400,000 songs or 2,000 hours of video.
What does such a cushy night’s sleep cost? You’d better be a professional rapper, sports star or other very important person because to make every night a Starry Night could cost you anywhere between 20 and 50 grand.
