Applications for everything you need

The designers have paid equal attention to the bed’s comfortable amenities. The headboard and footboard are adjustable. The HiCan also records how much time the user spends lying down, and the tracker analyses ambient temperature, air quality, and sound pollution as well as the user’s body temperature, quality of sleep, and movement during the night. This sumptuous bed, which combines wellness with entertainment, can be yours for 40 000 €.
