Who says you can't take technology to bed?

We often hear the comment ‘who wants to curl upo in bed with a screen when you can have a book.’ Maybe we are looking at the beds we know and love but not the Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed from Leggett and Platt in the US.

This bed has it all WiFi connectivity that hooks you up with a 1.5TB media server with four gigs of RAM, a 2500 watt surround sound speaker system with four 8-inch subwoofers, an LCD projector, dual temperature controls and DVR capability and it also features a built-in iPod dock. It boasts a detection system that can monitor your movement and breathing patterns, and even reportedly detecting heavy snoring and automatically raising the bed 7 degrees until the snoring stops! In addition its temperature control can cool you down to 68° or alternatively heat you to 117° on the other side, immediately ending temperature disputes.

Who says beds are for sleeping and sex. Its easy to see some folk paying the $50K price ticket and never wanting to get up. All that appears to be missing is the Goblin Teasmaid !
