Floating On A Dream, Literally: The Magnetic Bed (with podcast)

PODCAST [podcast]http://marquetteturner.com/audio/090313_FloatingPod.mp3[/podcast]

Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey this bed made of permanent magnetic material, levitates through the power of opposing magnets. No electricity or other forms of energy have to be added in order to keep it floating. Magnets placed in the bed push away from magnets placed beneath the floor, thus causing the bed to “float” in the air. Thin cables attached to the four corners anchor the bed motionless in its horizontal and vertical position, and the bed can be installed both indoors and outdoors.

This magnetic bed was named as one of TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2006 & with an asking price starting at approximately $150,000 USD you would hope this aesthetic dream, sleeps as well as it looks.

That floating bed looks really great. I don't know how and what materials used in creating this. I'm sure that this is expensive.
