Whether if it’s because you’re hung over, or because it’s a Monday, or because it’s just too damn early (or probably a combination of all three), staying in bed always seems like a great idea. Bed is home, bed is comfy, bed is safe. But staying in bed would be really bad for you if you actually never moved, because…
Waking up is hard. Anybody who can just get straight up in the morning cannot be trusted. For the rest of us, we make do with phones and alarm clocks and snoozing and coffee and showers and jobs that pay us to not be late. Perhaps we’re going to easy on ourselves. Maybe we need a high voltage ejector bed that shoots…
Jack Tew and Sorcha Anglim came up with such an awesomely creative way to tell a love story and one that makes so much sense: From the sole perspective of the bedroom. The short, Me & You, is filmed completely from the ceiling of the room, giving you a bird's eye view of the entire relationship, from start to finish.
A medieval drawbridge that lowers into a Murphy bed is such a perfect design pairing that it's surprising we don't see it more often.
One of the universal truths for most humans who appreciate things like comfort and relaxation and a collection of soft feathers and enveloping warmth and rejuvenation is that we love our sleep. It makes us feel good! And sure it wastes a lot of time but we feel like crap when we don't have enough of it. And beyond…
This guys job is to walk on a mattress. No, seriously. His name is Reuben Reynoso and he's a professional mattress walker. This is apparently the important, final step in making a mattress. I am not joking.
Ah, summer: Sun, BBQs, scantily-clad people gallivanting about for your viewing pleasure. Popsicles. And hot, sticky nights that transform your bed from the restful haven you love into an oppressive heat-coffin. Sleeping in the sumer sucks.
Unless you live in Antarctica or just lack proper blood flow to the head, you've probably spent a few sweaty, sleepless nights flipping a pillow over and over, seeking the refreshing refuge of its cooler side. With the PolarPillow, that's not an issue. Its cool side stays really cool.
The Olympics is all about grand feats of athletic prowess and endurance demonstrated by its competitors. But for the folks behind the scenes, it's hardly a party. In fact, engineers running data centers around the Olympics will be sleeping in these tiny pods next to their computers the whole time.
Archaeologists have found the world's oldest bed in South Africa and it's 50,000 years older than any bedding ever found. The 77,000-year-old bedding, which was made with medicinal plants, shows how creative our ancestors could be.
Photographer Jan von Holleben came up with a clever way to re-create his famous "Dreams of Flying" series by photographing a girl sleeping on her bed and having the girl's dreams fully displayed around her. I love it.
You know those workout shirts that keep you cool and dry? Like from Under Armour and Nike? These Sheex "performance" bedsheets are made out of the same material. And they're pretty much perfect for any type of activity you do in bed.
Yusuke Suzuki created this book bed—the sheets are flippable pages!—as a sort of art piece/playground wonderland for children. It'd actually be the perfect bed to read on too, just look at how much space there is and how you can comfortably commandeer your own sheet.
You know the dri-fit type shirts people use when they work out? Yeah, the fabric that wicks sweat away and keeps you cool and dry. These bed sheets, by Sheex, are made from that same material. The idea is that the microfiber polyester/Lycra Spandex fabric blend makes your bed sheets breathable, keeps them stretchy and…
This concept combines the best part of sleeping, your pillow, with the worst part of sleeping, your alarm clock. You pull the tab to set the alarm and when the time is right, the entire pillow vibrates to wake you up.
I'm not sure why it exists, but there's such thing as a bed made from latex. People insert themselves into the Vacuum Bed, or VacBed, and vacuum all the air out, leaving them trapped and immobile.
There's nothing worse than an overly chatty hairdresser. Someone harping on about their snotty-nosed children, or about how lazy their husband is. Bring on the robots, I say. Especially if they can store memories on a customer's preferred massage treatment.
With any luck, the only vibrations you'll be feeling in this quake-proof bed is from...no, I won't go there. Should an earthquake happen, the bed turns into a strongbox and stores tinned food and water in case of emergencies.
