Magnetic Bed

“Every so often, we like to take a look at things whose functionality  isn’t measured in gigabytes or megabangs, but instead just look amazing.  This magnetic floating bed, I submit, may be among the coolest things  we’ve ever covered. Designed by Dutchman Janjaap Ruijssenaars, it’s got  enough magnets to keep 900 kilograms (1,984 pounds) floating in the air.  To make sure that the bed doesn’t float away should it become windy (or  “interesting,” wink wink), it’s tethered to the walls by four cables.”

“Technically, the magnetic floating bed is for sale, but at a price of  1.2 million euros ($1.53 million), you’re not likely to find it in your  local mattress store.”
