There will be days where I’ll post up at the bar with a few buddies and we’ll try and just spit ball until we stumble upon the next billion dollar idea. We haven’t come up with anything all that great yet, but now I’m absolutely kicking myself for not thinking of this idea that has come from the brain of Arianna Huffington (of Huffington Post fame), who is now selling phone beds via her new health and wellness startup, Thrive Global. Literally, it is a bed for your phone. Ten phones, to be exact. And while it’s more expensive than the bed you bought your dog, it’s still pretty affordable at $100.
Featured on the shop’s homepage is the phone bed, which looks like the bed Charlie’s grandparents all share in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with room for 10 phones. The charging station, which features a satin mattress, is supposed to be a place to put away your phone and separate it from your resting space. As the site describes it, “By giving our phones their own bed – outside our bedroom – we can say goodnight to our day and get the sleep we need to wake up fully recharged.”
The bed is actually cute AF. Stylish, with a modern look that would blend exquisitely into the millennial decor.
And for only $100? What a steal! They’re basically giving it away. Do you know how much a normal charger costs you at the Apple store? Well I do, because mine breaks every few months. They’re like $30. I probably buy minimum three a year. You know what doesn’t break? Beds. You know what’s cool as shit? A satin mattress where your phone – after a long hard day of soliciting nudes and sending GIFs of Aziz Ansari facial expressions – can lay down and sleep for the recommended seven to nine hours a night. Add in the fact that you’ve got room for several phones in this thing and I’d say I just found the world’s most cost-effective iPhone charger.
Chanukah is right around the corner. I think you guys all know what to get me..
