Just in time for summer, an air-conditioned bed

It uses low-power fans that cost pennies a month to operate.

Japan Trend Shop

Do you want your air-conditioner but are too eco-minded to turn it on? The Japanese may have the perfect solution: the Air-Conditioned Bed, or Kuchofuku. This really is just a soft bed covering with two dual fans at the foot of the bed that pull and circulate air through the membrane. Japan Trend Shop sells it for $399, which is a lot pricier than the Bed Fan. But it's a whole lot kinder to your electricity bill since the low-power fans apparently guzzle just a mere 24 cents a month, based on 8-hour days. Not to mention that you'll sleep better knowing you aren't adding to global warming.
