A DIY levitating bed via magnets — we have the technology (11 Photos)

    I'd rather have a non-floating mattress that didn't feel like a stiff board under my back. Floating or not, the surface is still rigid.

    The guy in the video is a re-tard….6 years and this guy does it in what? a week or two at most? lol

      After seeing the design and copying. Mimicery is always easier than innovation.

    sounded funner than it looks

    Sounded more fun than it looks. You sir, may not take my money.

    I didn't bother watching the video. The pics don't show any magnets – what kind, how many, where they go – Nothing. Its a hack-job on the carpentry too, looks like a wooden pallet when its done. No craftsmanship, regardless of the magnets. Plus all the other criticisms about magnets, tripping over wires, and the discomfort of such a bed already stated. Abso-F'ing-Worthless post Chive.

      You made the right decision, my friend. The video is mostly a Dutch (pronounced DOO-sh) architect talking and displaying a miniature model that looks like the monolith from 2001.

    He who has the magnetic bed shall never have sex with a woman. Fact.

    Dont think I could use this as a primary bed but would be cool to keep in the corner of a large room as a conversation piece

  • Gteg

    Lot of effort for a twin bed. Only a single guy would have this much time on his hands.

  • Dubduces

    What if instead of teathering the cables outward, you were to teather them inward? I know I'm no physics expert by any means, but it seems to me it would be more practical and have the same effect.

    Hmmm…. looks like the same levitating bed set I saw on sale at IKEA.

  • Mar

    of course there would be some douchey gay ass architect behind this…

  • Dave

    What they fail to show you are the 20K worth of magnets, quality magnets are very very expensive.

  • chud

    This is the worst tutorial I've ever seen. C'mon Chive! The guy doesn't show where the actual magnets go, what kind, size, strength, how many… If this were a real do-it-yourself I'd be able to refer only to this and replicate the project myself. Can we get more info from this person and then make a better bed and show him how its really done?

  • Brutal_Deluxe

    This is the internet, son. If we can't be serious at all times here, where can we be serious, I ask you?

  • really

    I call BS. I think this part of the 529 conspiracy.

  • scooter

    BS why doesn't he even tap his little model bed to show its reaction to having a load put on it? The plank is being held up by the wires. No where in the video does anyone actually sit on the thing.

  • chaosd

    Cut the cables on one side and it would flip and crush whomever or whatever was on it. So it's a combination bed/trap.

  • cudaman

    Hell, why not just make the whole floor the base and pad the sides of the bed for a true floating bed. Then have a few spots on the wall to tether it to?

  • Anon

    6 years research? I honestly thought this was a joke. I expected he was also going to say it cost 100 million to develop. Then I realized he was serious, and felt sorry.

      I love it. You guys go. Stop by if you get into the Denver area. We’ll even let you use our whirlpool and sewohr. We can get Jill & Laura and the kids and have a party. Good luck and great weather.Love you Dave & Donna

  • Meh

    Stupid and pointless.
