Could This Be The Coolest Bed in the World?

November 20, 2013


The highly advanced Somnus-Neu bed was designed with the help of the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand and has been billed as not only the coolest, but also as the most technologically advanced beds in the world. Watch the video below and you’ll soon see why this is...

The Somnus-Neu bed tech innovations include:

  • A wifi or ethernet internet connection
  • An audio-visual system with an HD video projector and 5-point audio system, iPod compatibility, TV and Video capabilities, as well as streaming media (such as NetFlix) capabilities.  
  • Mechanized curtains and a drop-down screen that can enclose the mattress
  • LED lighting under, above and around the bed

All controlled by two retractable 17-inch touch screen monitors. 

But if you think that all of that is impressive, you’d be wrong; because the most remarkable feature of the Somnus-Neu beds is the “data chain” that links all of them together. This allows the beds users to take advantage of assigned RFID (radio-frequency identification) cards in each bed. This card gives them access to a website where they can input their appointment and travel schedule, contact numbers, meeting notes and media preferences. When users arrive at a Somnus-Neu bed an RDIF card reader determines who they are and downloads their data. This means no matter where you are in the world, if you are sleeping on a Somnus-Neu you will never be late for a meeting or social event again and your favourite music and movies are just a simple touch away.
