Getting the recommended eight hours of sleep every night means you'll spend at least a third of your life in bed. So if you're going to splurge on a piece of furniture, it might as well be a bed that constantly adjusts its comfort to match your sleeping position and warms your feet so you can fall asleep faster at night.

We all make mistakes, and we can only assume that Etsy seller FableBedworks was in a rush when they posted this phenomenal transforming rocket ship murphy bed on their online store. Why else would they mistakenly refer to it as a "childrens bed" when there are certainly more than enough adults who would love a creation like this in their bedrooms?
This is the Orrb. The futuristic pod is just large enough for one human to sit and stare at a screen in total isolation for the sake of "wellness and learning". It's like one of those nap pods you might find at Google, only more private and, somehow, more alien-looking. You know you want one.
At last year's CES, bed technology took a quantum leap forward with the Sleep Number IQ that guaranteed a good night's sleep by tracking your sleep patterns and automatically adjusting the bed to make it more comfortable when you tossed and turned.
