Vote: Are Smart Beds the Next Big Thing?

By Abbey Tiderman 01.22.2017 blog

 

When you share a room with a sibling, sometimes you just need some alone time. And then there are times after a particularly homework-heavy school week when you’d just prefer to spend Saturday in bed. Thanks to a new high-tech smart bedboth are possible—not to mention pretty awesome.

A king-sized, ultra modern bed frame, iNyx essentially functions as a self-contained bedroom. It features a large home theater screen, which slides down at the foot of the bed so you can watch your favorite movies and shows, play games and go online. It also has a built-in HD projector in the headboard and a 5-point sound system to immerse you in your digital experiences. Thirsty? Cup holders to the rescue, of course.

When you want privacy, you simply lower the bed’s retractable blinds. And LED lighting overhead can mimic a sky full of stars. There’s even an aroma dispenser system to freshen things up.

The price tag’s pretty steep at $4,999, but developers hope to get the cost down over the next few years. Plus, pay just $100 and you can give it a trial run for 24 hours. So what do you say? Would you want to get some shut-eye in one of these?

Vote and tell us what you think — you can even submit video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    I don’t think this is a good NBT because many people already have trouble going to sleep and this would just give them a reason to stay up longer.

    i think it is not the next big thing because it is for people that have a lot of money and looks expensive
