Hiding money under a mattress is not just a thing of the past – it is a living tradition that is being experimented with using new safe technologies and security systems of various kinds. Specifics vary, but many people feel safest when they can sleep close to their money – particularly during tough financial times.
Some bed safes store under the side of the bed in concealed cavities while others are located right under the pillow you sleep on – safe, sure, but comfortable? That is an entirely other question.
For the extreme safe-t-nuts, however, there is the Quantum Sleeper – a patented but yet-to-be-mass-produced design. This (extremely expensive) multi-purpose bed concept is designed to house you and your loved one(s) in case of emergency – complete with an entertainment system and rebreathable/filtered air system.
