|The levitating bed was a bed that
turned into a table. It was made up of a counter weighting system
similar to the Fly rail. The Bed itself was connected to the frame with
rail, and had cable attached to the bottom four corners of the
side panels. The frame had eight pulley wheels that made a track for
the cable. The cable was led from the
side panels, to the pulley
wheels on the frame, and down to the center of the frame where there
were two technicians (myself and an other) who pulled down on a 2x6
with the appropriate weights which was like the arbor of a fly rail.
The technicians would pull down the arbor to make the bed go up and let
it down slowly to let the bed go down.
