Sonic Bed

If you thought blasting your iPod was bad for your ears, you ain't seen nothing. The sonic bed is a king-size bed with 12-channel surround sound. It may look like a wooden tank from the outside, but inside its got enough speakers to dwarf any home theater set up. Created by Kaffe Matthews as a museum exhibit (no plans for retail as of yet), the bed requires 220 volts of electricity and covers every inch of your body in sound...

As you all know, I'm a somewhat casual audiophile and the best way I can listen to music is to listen to it with all my senses active, not by being half asleep.

I agree with what both of you said over there. However, I introduced this topic as this special bed doesnít exist solely to deafen humans, it has its advantages. I donít think an architect would waste his time creating something which would only be source to trouble to his customersÖ Razz

Well, lemme talk about the benefits a sonic bed offers as it seems that Shanuís question is subjected to that only. Music has many roles to play in any listenerís life; as entertainment, for example. Here it serves as a medium to a peaceful and relaxing sleep. That kind of music is specially produced and chosen to aid a person gain better control of his health. As per my research, these musical beds are said to act as calmness within the mind, relaxation for the body and stress-free mind tool.

At times, persons tend to complain of being awakened by any single household noise such as creaking floors, refrigeratorís door or fans. That music may then mask the disturbing noise while those people are far away from the planet in their dreams. Also, it counteracts the barking of dogs which are well-known for messing up a good sleep.

Do you still feel that this bed is of no use? Neutral

But in this case, we can at least close the doors and windows, can't we? Razz

There are times when dogs' barking do disturb even while the doors and windows are closed, what do you do then? Take myself for example: I remember the time I had a doggie, Rocky, at my place. If he heard anyone making any noise at night (even if it's in my neighbourhood), he would come near my window and would not stop barking until I came out. I dunno how many times I had to wake up due to that. Mad

Now, for creaking floors, refrigerator's door (if it's noisy) or any door creating a lot of disturbance as well as fans. What would you do, huh? What a Face

Instead of sleeping in a sonic bed to be accompanied with music, I can listen to music on my sound system which is next to my bed while being on the bed.

Furthermore, the sonic bed would only be useful for a nap/sleep while a stand-alone sound system can be used in various scenarios such as in a home theatre or with a gaming computer.

Again, a sound system next to the bed can help as much as the sonic bed. Another thing is about comfort. Would you be comfortable in a bed with four walls? Razz

Well said about the sound system Varun but as for the second part, i would be comfortable in a bed with four walls as i am sure that the risk of falling isn't there.
And also i do not take much space in bed.

Yeah, I agree but an experience in the sonic bed wouldn't be that bad, after all. Razz

As I said above, an experience would be worth. Moreover, we can compare whether a sound system does its job better while being in the bed or outside the bed during a nap. By the way, do any of you people know if there are sonic beds in our country? Suspect

The article says that the sonic bed is still in an experimental stage. However, its cost would certainly be astronomical compared to that of a stand-alone bed along with a stand-alone sound system. So, I don't think it would really be worth it.

Try it with a surround sound system around your bed. Place the satellites at each corner of the bed while finding a place for the subwoofer underneath it, experience it for yourself and then give us some feedback. What do you say, Jeet?

If i could, iwould have done it.
But it's been said, that the sonic bed is still experimental, i won't be able to try it since it is not in Mauritius.
According to me it would have been a good experience.
