Can motorsport’s continued popularity be partially attributed to all of the racing car-shaped beds that ’80s kids begged their parents for? The Drone Racing League sure hopes so, as they created the modern day equivalent – a Bed in the form of a racing drone– in the hope of creating a new generation of fans who will grow up with and recognize the young sport.
For those unfamiliar with the decades-old trend, toy makers like Hot Wheels have realized that bedtime could be more appealing by dressing up a bed with fake wheels, a fake steering wheel and a fake dashboard to make getting into bed feel like being behind the wheel of one a high performance racing car. (The questionable practiceThe children who learn to associate getting into a vehicle with falling asleep were never approached.)
For 2021, the racing car bed was replaced by the DRL drone bed. It is Design is based on the Drone Racing League Racer4 quadcopter used by competitive pilots during the DRL World Championship season. As you can probably imagine, what the DRL calls the “ultimate Christmas present for the next generation of adrenaline junkies” is the $ 25,000 bed Luxury made to orderso they don’t roll off the line by the thousands. You have until Feb. 1, 2022 to to order something, but the units available will be very limited.
So what kind of bed will bring you $ 25,000? The bed is available in two sizes, twin or full, and is mGoodbye made of MDF with the Drone Racing League logo engraved in the front. if When deciding where to place it in a room you need to consider the four arms that stick out on each side and are accented with bright red LEDs and rotating propellers made of high density foam. Like furniture go It has a huge footprint so those in an apartment or small condominium likely will have little chance of finding space for it.
Other features include sleep masks that look like the video goggles used to control the drones and the option to customize the bed with a TV mount at the foot end to – you guessed it – watch DRL races. Unfortunately, the bed is only available for delivery to the U.S. (International parents will probably breathe a sigh of relief) and will take at least a few months after ordering to ship. It seems like it didn’t include a mattress, pillow, or themed bedding, which is unfortunate and kind of surprising given the exorbitants Price tag.
