Geeky Bed: Sleeping Pod With LED Lights And Speakers

Known as the "Transport," and described as the perceptual pod bed, this beauty has sprung to popularity this week following a NYT article and the realization for millions of geeks like myself that by not sleeping in a large illuminated pod I've really been missing out. The pod was designed by Alberto Frias when he was working on his thesis project and combines a luxuriant sleeping pod with satellite speakers and light-emitting diodes synchronized to music, a waterbed pad and a cushion to provide you a cozy spa-like atmosphere to relax. The base model goes for about $10,000, so this is probably only great for those born rich geeks.

How did Frias get inspired to make the pod?

“I kind of sat down and meditated, and the sun was shining on me, and I was immersed in the light,” Frias told the NYT. “And I had this feeling of expansiveness, of being in the present moment — a trancelike state. I thought of getting a trailer and filling it with lights, but, cost-wise, it was too much for a thesis project. So I thought, why not bring it down to scale?”
Taking his inspiration from the shape of the human eye, Mr. Frias decided that an elliptical vessel would work best. He hired a fiberglass company in Arizona to make three domes — two identically sized, one slightly smaller.
