Sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting back and watching a good movie, but that’s not entirely true. Why expend all that energy to remain in an upright sitting position when Sapapa’s Tornado bed lets you lay back while still enjoying a surround sound experience? Thanks to a headboard embedded with an amp, a couple of speakers and a subwoofer, the Tornado can provide a pseudo home theater experience using a PhaseCue System which manipulates the audio signals to create a kind of surround sound effect. It’s no where near as convincing as a true 5.1 setup, but I doubt too many people need one of those in their bedroom.
The Tornado bed gets even better though. Using a hydraulic mechanism it can automatically adjust itself to four different positions so you don’t even have to sit up by yourself to better see the TV. Seriously, all it needs is some automated system for dealing with bed sores, maybe a feeding/water tube, and I don’t see any reason to ever get out of bed again. $3,600 to $3,800 depending on what size you want.
