CES: Gadget of the day

What comes with a $50,000 bed?Bed_2

On display at CES was the Starry Night bed from Leggett & Platt, which at the top price includes an HDTV projector that pops up from the headboard, pop-up speakers, dual temperature controls for the mattress, snoring sensors, automatic head lifter (in case snoring is detected), breathing-pattern monitoring (it can be linked to a 911 call system if breathing is absent), iPod dock and automatic lighting systems that can be set for reading, awakening or romance.

A discount model, which comes without the entertainment package and some other niceties, is $20,000.
