It comes with a a meditation app that enhances your relaxing experience.

If you really want to, you can buy an at-home sensory deprivation tank.

At the Salon del Mobile in Milan this year, Starpool, an Italian spa manufacturer, showed of its Zerobody, a waterbed-like piece of furniture that tries to capture the same sense of floating without you having to get all wet.

The company collaborated with Neocogita, which develops cognitive training exercises.

Known as a dry bed or pool, it’s essentially a heated waterbed that offers the benefits of immersion tanks, eliminating your body weight, without the need of having to get wet.

During the floating experience, the body stops regulating body temperature and gravitational structure.

The body is then free to produce endorphins, which inhibit the transmission of pain signals in the body and sometimes produce a feeling of euphoria.

While you’re enveloped by the warmth, you’re supposed to listen to Nu Relax, a meditation app that enhances the experiences.

There are also color-changing LEDs inside, though how they aid in sensory deprivation is unclear.

Isolation tanks were first developed by John C. Lilly, a neuropsychiatrist who mainly used them to as a way to study consciousness in the 1950s.

(He also did a lot of research with LSD and dolphin communication, and sometimes these two overlapped.).

These days, the tanks are mainly used as stress relief, and its proponents say it can help with pain and achieving new levels of consciousness.

It has been designed by Cristiano Mino and is a minimalist, upholstered design, intended for workplaces and spas.

There’s even the option to choose what color you want to surround you.
