Weekend Fun: Somnus-Neu, The Most Advanced Bed On The Planet
New Zealand based designer Grier Govorko has created the Somnus-Neu, an advanced, multimedia bed that features state-of-the-art surround sound, a retractable video screen, Wi-Fi, an iPod dock, motorized curtains, and three different kinds of LED lighting turned for specific activities, reading, ambient, and “don’t trip while going to the bathroom in the middle of the night” with a halo of floor lighting.
The whole dealio is controlled by two 17″ touchscreen monitors on either side of the bed. So what’s up with that name? Somnus is the Roman god of sleep, and neu is German for new.
Govorko, a set designer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, hopes to have the Neu’s installed in several hotels during 2010.
