Specialty drone bed takes flight with $ 25,000 price tag
Not everyone can be as cool as Kirk Van Houten and sleep in a race car. But Milhouse’s dad is better off hoping his music career takes off if he is to be Springfield’s coolest cat. Because the race car beds are out and the drone beds are in it. As long as you have $ 25,000 to spend where you sleep.
Despite its price tag, the new Drone Bed from the Drone Racing League (which we first heard about at Gizmodo) does not really fly. It’s still pretty awesome. “Inspired by DRL’s Racer4 drone”, it is made from MDF. The rotating propellers of the bed are made of high density foam. (Much better than metal. You don’t have to worry about falling off your bed and cutting your ankle that way.) It’s also adorned with LED lights that circle the bed. That might not justify the price, but think about the savings you will make on the nightlights! And it has “high quality scratch resistant furniture paint” in case you decide to run dirty against other drone beds.
You can also opt for a TV stand at the foot of the bed. And your order will also get you First Person View Drone Goggles Shaped Sleep Masks. Sounds silly, but that’s actually the best part. What’s the point of having a drone bed if you can’t pretend to fly it? Precisely, it is useless.
Since the market for this bed is likely to be limited, each is made to order. It comes in two sizes, double (80 “x 38” x 28 “) and full (80” length x 53 “). However, the Drone Bed won’t be around for long. The deadline to order one is February 1. There is an expected wait of 2-4 months, with delivery only available to customers in the United States.
It probably won’t be enough time for Kirk Van Houten to record a hit single and earn enough money to buy one. But at least he still has his race bed.
