The 'Vessel One' Mattres Plays Back Intimate Audio

If the walls had ears, and you enjoy pillow talk, then the Vessel One bed is the mattress for you. Over time, the mattress records the sounds of the people using the bed. Randomly over the next few hours, days, months, even years, the bed will play back the sounds to trigger what the designer Adam Farlie calls audio memories.

Implications - Our increasingly digital lives are causing us to become disconnected from face-to-face relationships. In response, innovative designers are creating digital products that capture offline interactions and save them for future enjoyment. This particular design plays back captured sounds at random, which challenges traditional timelines of romance and private interaction.
