Magnetic Floating Bed

Check out this $1.5 Million magnetic floating bed. I wonder if all the magnetic energies are good for your body…

A young Dutch architect has created a floating bed which hovers above the ground through magnetic force and comes with a price tag of 1.2 million euros ($1.54 million).
Janjaap Ruijssenaars took inspiration for the bed — a sleek black platform, which took six years to develop and can double as a dining table or a plinth — from the mysterious monolith in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 cult film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

“No matter where you live all architecture is dictated by gravity. I wondered whether you could make an object, a building or a piece of furniture where this is not the case — where another power actually dictates the image,” Ruijssenaars said.

Magnets built into the floor and into the bed itself repel each other, pushing the bed up into the air. Thin steel cables tether the bed in place.

“It is not comfortable at the moment,” admits Ruijssenaars, adding it needs cushions and bedclothes before use.

Although people with piercings should have no problem sleeping on the bed, Ruijssenaars advises them against entering the magnetic field between the bed and the floor.

    if you push it over too far it comes crashing down. i know there’s steel cables to hold it in place, but that doesn’t stop you from pushing it over a couple inches. I know from experience. I sure wouldn’t EVER put ANY part of MY body UNDER THAT THING. lol
