We thought our memory foam mattress was a big deal. Then our eyes fell onto the description and photos of the Somnus-Neu Bed, which is not so much just a bed, but a whole sleeping/rest environment that brings on the 4-star service right into your bedroom with technologies that soothe all your senses with a modern design suited for the high tech it's fitted with...
Because we know our plebian behinds won't be finding ourselves ordering the highly luxurious Somnus-Neu Bed any time soon (it won't be available until 2010 anyway, so maybe we can start a charity fund), we'll just find satisfaction in sharing some of the notable features:
- three distinct lighting zones built in, all of which are highly efficient and fully programmable LED lights. With 16 million possible color combinations, all to ease your eyes into a relaxed state or flashbacks to experimentation in college.
- the bed comes equipped with a Class D digital amplifier, 5 speakers and digital audio player connections for whichever device you'd like to plug-in or stream from.
- two touch-screens, one for you and one for your partner, so you can forgo any physical interaction and just IM each other instead.
- and the best feature is the projection screen which operates as both an automatic privacy curtain (so nobody knows about your affinity of Paulie Shore films) and a drop down projection screen for the built-in short throw HD projector to bring movie time right there in the comforts of your bed.
The Somnus-Neu iis constructed from 100% recycled wood composites, with custom upholstery and other wood finishes available.
