Would you buy this bed for $50,000?

It has everything from snore-detecting technology to a built-in projector.

There's only one problem with having a luxury massage chair: It's almost impossible to find a bed that lives up to it, for the long nap that should naturally follow. Thankfully, there's at least one company that's trying to answer the call for this pressing need.

The "Starry Night Bed" might well be described as a computerized sleeping device, as its features include a raft of technologies that monitor your sleeping habits and positions, right down to how much you snore. To wit, according to Luxist: "The bed has a vibration sensor and load cell technologies that measure how much you toss and turn, and how often you get out of bed at night. It also detects snoring and then slightly raises the snorer to help eliminate the problem. When the snoring stops, the bed goes back down." Talk about close to home.

And once you awaken from your beauty rest, the Starry Night turns into a veritable theater on box springs, casting a 10-foot screen from a headboard-mounted projector and providing mattress-shaking sound with four 8-inch subwoofers. There's a wireless keyboard to go with its Wi-Fi connection, of course, plus 1.5 terabytes of storage that can hold up to 2,000 hours of video. That's a good thing, because for its estimated price range--$20,000 to $50,000--you may never have any money to leave the house again.
