I posted about this elsewhere, in a much older thread that someone was looking for a "bedroom setup".
But this Floating Bed deserves a thread or three of its own.
THIS THING IS AWESOME!!!!
I've got a hammock stand in my room, and it's best with a spreader bar or bridge setup. I'm currently using a hammock that was intended to be bridge hammock.. without the spreader bars. So it's really not all that comfortable for something that I sleep on so frequently. Better than a bed, but re-incorporating the spreader bars could help a lot.
This Floating Bed overcomes any shortcomings of a stand, like mine, with two endpoints.
It allows multiple people, 3 or 4, to fit comfortably on the same "platform"... and all experience the same "rock". One thing I hate about my setup is that two people can fit in my hammock, but not comfortably. This thing is like a spreader bar hammock designed for a ***** house... maybe even a crack ***** house. This thing is soo awesome.
Flat, like a cot.
Rock, like a hammock from heaven.
Worth $3000+??? I think they're looking at the max end of what I'd consider to be valuable. Considering the legs don't actually come with the already greater than $3000 "base", I'd say that it's not actually worth it.
It'll take me a while to figure out how to build one as cheaply as possible, but I'll do it. And enjoy my 1-person only hammock until then.
The price is the only thing that's preventing more videos out on the internet, and on forums like this one.
But, man... An immitation Floating Bed is likely just as good as the real one.
Not sure if I'll be able to sleep without figuring out how to make my own platform. I can buy some chains no problem.
