We may be late to the slumber party (we overslept?) but felt it would be remiss not to show off this high tech hovering bed. Designed by Janjaap Ruijssenaars with a price tag of over a $1 million dollars, this is the stuff billionaire dreams are made of/on.

This fascinating floating bed was Inspired by Stanley Kubrik's 2001 film, A Space Odyssey. From Universe Architecture in the Netherlands, magnetic forces push the two slabs apart while cables tether the bed in place.

(A round version was commissioned for the recent Arthur remake.)
