Neighbours keeping you up at night with incessant music? Too stressed to nod off? Matsushita, the company behind the Panasonic brand in the UK, reckons it has the answer to a perfect night’s sleep.
The Suimin (sleep) room is a sound insulated capsule which combines a reclining bed with massage, soft lighting, soothing music and a plasma display – all controlled by a computerised wall-mounted panel. Importantly, it’s also small enough to install in the home!
Due to go on sale this week at Matsushita’s sleep showroom in Tokyo, the Suimin will cost a cool £18,000 – that’s a lot of sleeping pills. A spokesman for Matsushita told The Guardian that no one who had tested the system so far had been able to stay awake!
