I was looking for props for my Barbarella remake.

I love sleeping outside, but that bed is stupid.

I had those glow in the dark stars you stick up on the ceiling when I was a kid. Does that count?

How in the hell do you get that into a bedroom?

Hey my son has something that will do that.  It looks like a turtle and will project the stars is 3 different colors,
 
2014-02-12 02:40:02 PM
Some of the homeless are quite fond of it, at least compared to their alternatives...

Just when I thought I'd seen the most pointless thing in the world, something like this comes along.

It looks like a giant slipper.

The future is here!  You too can sleep in this bespeckled enema bulb for the low, low price of "Are you farking stupid?"

Futuristic bed mimics night outdoors on some alien planet.

Do you get arrested for using a blanket? Or, is that only if you live in Florida?

I came here to say post this. My folks put them on the ceiling in the form of constellations.

You've spent X dollars on this thing, and are now getting ready to settle in for your first nights sleep.  Now.. where do you put your glasses and alarm clock? This thing doesn't seem to have a shelf or something.
 
2014-02-12 04:09:56 PM
My God....

I think you know the rest.

I notice that your idea didn't include a bed, Mr Smartypants!

If your parents really loved you, they would have gotten glow-in-the-dark paint and drawn the night sky on your ceiling.

I would be miserable in that thing

Constellations?  Didn't you watch the video and see that stars don't form constellations, they rotate around an axis independently, at varying rates of about one half to one and a half RPM?

All an excuse to post a Friends clip. A pretty tenuous one at that.

"Futuristic"?

I remember seeing this exact same thing (fiberglass, 1/2 egg shaped) in furniture stores in the 70's when my mom was dragging us kids along looking at dinette sets.  Only difference was that the "stars" were a string of Christmas lights with partial shades over each bulb.

/what was old is new again?

While struggling with jet lag I was doing a lot of reading about sleep and things like melatonin. Turns out that the best sleep you can get is in pitch darkness. Which is why a lot of Europeans use those heavy black-out shutters that come down on the outside of the windows.

Sleeping with a bunch of LEDs shining on you sounds like a bad idea.

It's supposed to simulate sleeping under the stars. Throw a sleeping bag on the floor! :)

Great. Now adapt that concept for babies and little children.

 Also, it needs a temperature controlled mattress pad that can warm/cool. Also that light pattern sucks. They could really go upscale, turn the surface into a display, and then put real constellations and stuff on there. Then sell app packages controlled by a smartphone for different kinds of backgrounds.


The adult version needs a dvd player and a tv screen, maybe some drink holders, and a fold out tray.

absofreakinglutely.

I painted my bedroom dark brown, put up blackout curtains and it is like sleeping in a mausoleum.  Closest thing to the bunk bed I had when I was a kid, where i put blankets up around it, forming this strange little sleeping cave essentially. I've always been a late night/late morning person and this is the ticket.

Just make sure to have some low-light source available for sexy time. Pitch darkness and sex makes for some interesting..mistakes.
