The world's first iPod-compatible bed was revealed by manufacturer Leggett and Platt at CES.
This bed - called the Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed - is packed with high-tech toys, including WiFi connectivity, a surround sound speaker system, an LCD projector, dual temperature controls and DVR capability. It also features a built-in iPod dock. Essentially, this bed (which costs between $20,000-$50,000) is a high tech temple of sleep for the iPod user who doesn't feel like going anywhere.
The bed also features vibration detection. This means that if a sleeper is detected to be vibrating the bed (most likely through snoring) half the bed will automatically be raised 7-degrees, returning to its original position once the snoring stops.
"I know it sounds like a lot, but you show me somebody that sleeps in a bed with someone that snores; I will show you a person that thinks $20,000 is a very small amount to pay to solve that problem," Mark Quinn, group executive vice president for Leggett & Platt's bedding division, said Tuesday at CES.
