Grab Some Sleep On Really Slow Robotic Beds at London Gallery

Finally going to sleep in bed doesn’t mean you have to remain stationary.
Thanks to some artistic creativity, a London museum will allow up to two visitors a night to experience the sensation of meandering around the place on a robotic bed.
Mashable’s Blathnaid Healy explains, “Each night, two people will roam through the gallery, moving through Belgian artist Carsten Höller's Decision exhibition in slow motion at speeds of less than a metre per minute.”
Using some sort of dark magic referred to in the report as lasers, the beds will amble about the gallery at a snail’s pace, so scream “Whee!” accordingly.
Here is what an experience such as this will look like according to the participating Hayward Gallery:
Southbank Centre’s website has more information for those who enjoy being lulled to sleep by technology and artistry.
Taking place from June 10-Sept. 6, Decision is “The exhibition, which sprawls across Hayward Gallery and erupts beyond its roof and walls, explores perception and decision making.”
One part of the exhibition is of course the roaming beds, tickets for which will go on sale Wed., June 3.
Nabbing a reservation will run you £300 per night, but that is for access to both beds, use of the gallery for the night as well as “Tea, coffee, water and Insensatus Vol. 1 Fig. 1 toothpaste.”
Now if you have the intention of general tomfoolery, there will be security present and CCTV video will be recording all day and night.
So keep your shenanigans to playing Hot Lava while whizzing about on beds that act as gigantic Roombas to yourself.
