The iCon an 'iPad-compatible' Bed; Costs $20,000

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 33 comments

We can't imagine there was much of a race to be the first company with an iPad-compatible bed, but who are we to deprive Hollandia of the title?

We know a lot of people think Apple gadgets are overpriced and that this does nothing but attract elitist snobs who have no problem paying exorbitant prices for something they could get elsewhere for a lot less. The same goes for those official Apple accessories. Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy a no-name iPod case from your local electronics dealer than pay $30 for a pack of 'iPod socks'?

Still, one could argue that $30 for six iPod sleeves is good value. After all, you do get six, right? However, we imagine there's not one person who could justify spending $20,000 on the first first iPad-compatible bed. Aptly named the iCon, Gizmodo reports that this Hollandia bed features an adjustable mattress along with a custom headboard that packs two iPad docks, and a sound system including four speakers and a 250-watt amplifier. It's also available in more than 200 different colours and fabrics so you can match your bed with your décor.

The price for this high-tech bed is steep. Though it's not immediately clear from the Hollandia's website how much they're charging people for the iCon, Giz reports that the bed will set you back a cool $20,000. Hollandia also boasts beds that come with built-in Sony BRAVIA tellies, and even a 'SAFE-T' bed that has a safe built into the bed under the owner's pillow. The SAFE-T bed also costs a pretty penny, ringing in at just over $20,000.

Check out the rest of Hollandia's luxury beds here.

    That made laugh.

    Is this for people that bought everything else under the sun and now they resort to something like this? Kind of lame but hey who am I to judge?

    amazing what stupidity leads too... they are actually designing furniture and appliances around a useless device... to make it useful.

    it is equivalent to one, who tries to match a 95% of house decoration to a curtain color that he/she bought earlier

    Steve Jobs has already ordered one for his bedroom, plus one for each guest room.

    Hollandia's marketing department is in a frenzy.
