It's a board painted black. I'm guessing it would kill a laptop or phone that got anywhere near it.

I bet that it'll hurt if it flips over.

How many Meeting of the Juggalos events has that thing hosted?

Might not be a great idea if you have any piercings in a sensitive spot.

There's something profoundly sad about this picture.  They were going for "Innovative. Luxurious. Elite," yet all I see is, "Cold. Empty. Alone."

Imagine if one of those cables failed when you were in bed. Yeet!

Needs a reflecting pool. Maybe a zen garden.

Since it can hold up over fifteen hundred pounds, well, weight will not pose a problem for most people.

Given the way that looks and what it costs I won't feel as if I had my money's worth unless sleeping on it will cause me to evolve into a star child.

Best hope one of those cables never snap because it's not going to "simply drift up and away" if they do.  More like it's going to rapidly flip and slam into the ground with several thousand pounds of force.

Probably more.

I'll put it this way: Ever wanted to look like the Wicked Witch of the East?

Also, does it come with optional Han Solo bas relief?

That's why it costs $1.6 million: $5000 in materials, $1.5 million in liability insurance, the rest is profit.

So, no electronic devices, credit cards, or wristwatches in the bedroom. Definitely no one with a pacemaker.

This seems like such a useful development. Obviously the best possible use of rare-earth minerals.

Magnetic levitation isn't particularly new, so I fail to see why this toy costs $1.6 million. Not seeing any measurable benefit from using it, either.

To be fair, that picture would make a pretty dope prog rock album cover.

The more free space you have to do cocaine, the better. Fill your loneliness with your stock options and trust fund.

Is it a bigger version of this? I can imagine someone replacing the legs of a bed with upgraded versions of these floaty boys for much cheaper than a cool a million.

NO NO NO! They got it backward! I didn't want a floating bed, I wanted a bed I could float in!

A stainless prince Albert on this bed would be a hell of a way to learn about eddy currents.

"The Floating Bed was designed as a pointer towards gravity. An omnipresent force that dictates our lives here on earth. It was done by making the exception, a Floating Bed that seems to fall up instead of down."

Incorrect. It was designed to fleece rich morons.

"The Amber Heard bedroom floater" would have been a great name for it a few weeks back.
Kinda jumped the shark now.

If you *have* to tether it, what's keeping them from putting the floor mounts under the bed?

orneryredguy: If you *have* to tether it, what's keeping them from putting the floor mounts under the bed?


I think you need the tension strength from the leverage you get at that distance to keep the thing from unbalancing and flinging itself away from its moorings.

I guess we'd really have to know its stability without moorings first.  Is this thing really going to violently flip?  Or are they merely trying to give it that appearance?  From their ad copy, I wouldn't put it past them.

The fact that dogs genetically modified to serve as furniture isn't even close to the creepiest thing in Dune is a testament to Frank Herbert's demented imagination.

Do you sleep on your back? Try eating a big bowl of wilted cabbage and sprout soup followed by a bang-up nosh of expired Swedish meatballs and a large packet of stale liquorice allsorts accompanied by over-roasted black coffee left in an urn for three days.

That lot ought to have you floating over the bed all night long.

Yes. Needs a real grass floor to tie the room together.

I grew up hearing about microwave ovens causing sterility, high tension power lines causing mutations, and cell phones causing cancer. Sleeping near a huge focused magnet should be harmless. Right?

*Disclaimer: I'm probably wrong about a couple of those scenarios.
