Leggett & Platt

If you think a bed is just a bed, think again. The Starry Night Bed from Leggett and Platt takes sleeping to another dimension altogether. It comes complete with electronic components that can connect the bed with other electronics in the bedroom and throughout the house. You can program the bed to control the lights, thermostat, security system and media system. And the best part is you can create your own specific settings, like a reading mode, that will automatically raise the head of the bed, turn on the bedside lamp, turn off the television and lower the ceiling lights; or a relaxation mode that will turn on the bed's massage feature, lower the lighting and room temperature, and play your favorite "unwind" music. The only problem we can think of is how hard it must be getting up.
