Shopping Anyone?
Do you have 1.5 million dollars and have no idea what to do with it? Well then you could buy this floating bed!

More details on the floating system and photo from here:

Your eyes do not deceive you: that sleek slab levitating in midair is in fact a bed, and it is floating unsupported--though lightly tethered at its four corners--16 in. above the floor. The hovering bed is the daydream of a Dutch designer who says he was inspired by the monolith in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. Its secret is a matching set of repelling magnets, built into the bed and the floor below, that's powerful enough to support almost 2,000 lbs. The magnetic fields are supposed to be perfectly safe for sleepers, but you're advised to take off your earrings before vacuuming underneath.

I do like comfy beds. But I have a feeling they will not report excessive sales too soon! If you had the money, would you choose to spend it on this? I know I wouldn't.

    Of course I will! You made me curious with that don't ask!

    If I had the money, and a house big enough to put it it, yes I would buy it! How good would that be?!

    But what happens when there's a power-cut? I'm assuming it's electric?

    Curly, I don't know this little detail. But if it is, and the power-cut happens at 2 am when you're in dream-dream land, that would actually hurt a lot :P

    It's says that magnets are implemented in the floor and bed thus no electricity is involved. So Curly don't worry about that. I would buy this gadget-bed if I wouldn't have anything better to do with my money.

    i wouldn't... if i had that money now... but i would if I had so much money that that sum was just a little little part of it...

    Cris, true, I should read more carefully next time. I stopped at the price I guess :P I still would not buy it, I'd choose to spend all that money in Burj Al Arab or something...

    Ingeras87, dunno, still would consider it a waste. I'd wait for a few more years and buy it at 25% of the original price :D
