If Jaime Sommers is wrong when she says that the cause of insomnia is because we don’t have a Sleep Number bed, at least we can now find out more scientifically. The Zeo Personal Sleep Coach alarm clock includes a wireless headband that reads your brainwaves and transmits the data to the clock’s SD card. When you get up, transfer the info to your PC, upload results to Zeo online and they will suggest what you can do to get a decent night’s sleep. At a cost of $400.00, they had better not tell you to drink a glass of warm milk or take a hot bath.

Bedrooms can’t get any better than this. The Hi-Can (High Fidelity Canopy) system starts with a high tech canopy bed. Italian designer Edoardo Carlino added a hi-fi sound system that supports MP3 audio and an integrated video projection that can be used as a computer monitor or TV for watching or video game play. Although it is still at the prototype stage, Deta will be releasing the system. See the Hi-can site for more “gimme” images.

Paradise Image has developed the SunSpa for your pets. The company says it is the equivalent of sunlight shining through a window. The wooden arch has a temperature range of 80 to 85º at 150 watts for about 5,000 hours. The pad folds up for easy storage and its cover is odor, stain, and water resistant. The unique item will be on display May 16 to 18 at the Baltimore Pet Spring Trade Show, if you happen to be in the area. We are hoping the SunSpa will be so popular that the company will make one for humans.

For those who never make their bed but feel that it is one of those chores that should be done, this self-making bed might be the ticket. The sheet is rolled out by two fasteners that move along on each side of the bed. Inventor Enrico Berruti admits that he created the EasyBed for people who couldn’t do it themselves, but added “also because I’m a little bit lazy myself.”
The bed was displayed at this week’s International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva which also included an injection-giving robot and, believe it or don’t, an e-mail analyzer that its creator says can determine if someone you meet in a chat room is actually the same sex that they claim to be.

Take your 50-inch HDTV and literally shove it and your DVD player or VCR under your bed. The K2 Underbed Lift will work under a kingsize bed, needs only 8-inches of clearance space, and works in less than 35 seconds. It will also rotate for multiple viewing locations. A queensize version can handle a 42-inch screen. At first we thought, why would you want it to do this? Large screens look better far away, and if you have that size of a TV wouldn’t you want to flaunt it? Finally, we decided it would be one less thing to dust. Prices run from $13997.00 to $17,997.00 from K2 Mounting Systems.
If the hot summer weather leaves you tossin’ and turnin’ during the night, we’ve got something for you. Kuchofuku’s Air Conditioned Bed weighs only 5.3 pounds, is portable, and keeps you cool at night, using dual fans to circulate cool air beneath the cushion (so it’s not truly “air conditioned”, but we’ll let it go). Granted, you could just turn up your window AC, but if you don’t own one or you like your air conditioning a little more personalized, this is something to consider, assuming you have $400 USD to spare - otherwise, just pick up the much less expensive Chillow.
