Action Lounge SR4 Multimedia Mat – the hi-tech camp bed


multimedia_mat.jpgToday’s "seemed like a good idea at the time" hybrid gadget is the Action Lounge SR4 Multimedia Mat, which promises to combine stereo sound with a place to rest your head.

Except that it’s not a bed, more like a doctor’s couch without the legs. Unfold the Multimedia Mat and you get to lie down with your music – with the head rest packing in some stereo speakers and a subwoofer. There’s an audio input for connecting up your music or sound source, a headphone jack if you want to keep the sound for yourself and a remote control for the volume.

Quite what this offers over and above the classic sofa and stereo combo I don’t know, but if it ticks your boxes, it’s available now for £35.
