Bullet-Proof "Safe" Bed Has Own Toilet, Air Supply, and Microwave Oven

Bullet-Proof "Safe" Bed Has Own Toilet, Air Supply, and Microwave Oven

For the truly paranoid among us, there's a new extreme standard for which to strive in securing a good night's sleep. The "Quantum Sleeper" promises restful protection from "bio-terrorist attack, natural disaster, kidnappers/stalkers" and, of course, it's bulletproof.

If you regularly bed down in a hostile environment, maybe this is the right bed for you. The great thing is that securing yourself inside doesn't mean you're separated from many of the common comforts you would expect. The Quantum Sleeper can be fitted with a CD player, a DVD player with PC hookup, a microwave oven and even a refrigerator. Plus, it has options for cell phones, CB and short-wave radios.

The price tag on this bunk runs about $160 thousand. Basic requirements include enough space to install the unit, which weighs about 2000 pounds and expands to 138" wide x 98" high x 150" long when fully open. If you choose the natural disaster options, the manufacturer recommends it be installed on a ground floor with a concrete slab for proper anchoring, "to resist the forces of wind and water." Plus, installing on the ground floor will prevent the unit from falling through should the home structure become weak due to fire or other forces (or, say, really heavy beds).

Some other characteristics of the bed:

The 1.25" thick Polycarbonate plastic plating is constructed of laminated sheets and is capable of stopping a bullet from a hand gun up to a 357 magnum caliber. It has a tensile strength of 9,000 psi with a Specific Gravity of 1.2.

The units are designed to 20 percent compression and rated for greater than 7 psi (15' of water static head pressure).
The head cover side and front plates will be clear but w/ reflective characteristics that will allow the unit occupants to see out but prevent those on the outside from seeing in. The polycarbonate plating together provides the main attributes of a safe bed, safe room & bomb shelter.
The bed is still in the prototype phase and the company is seeking investors. Forget the race car bed you had when you were a kid. This sleeper steals the show.

From Boing-Boing.
