CES 2018 preview: Now you can party every day and rock all night at any age

CES 2018 Preview: Rocking Bed Does Exactly What You Think It Does and It’s Magnificent. (Nibletz, 11/17/2017)
Another Georgia startup.  The science behind Rocking Bed is actually pretty simple. The motion of a rocking bed will help keep the sleeper’s mind focused on a single stimulus, the rocking or the motion. In fact, this isn’t new science. Water beds that were popular in the 70’s and 80’s were trying to emulate this condition. Their science was flawed though because of unintended factors like the water temperature or just how full the bed itself was.

Of Kiss' 28 singles to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, only 2 reached the top 10.  The two versions of "Rock and Roll All Nite", both of which charted in 1975, are not among them.  The studio cut debuted at #96 for the week ending May 17, 1975, and spent 6 weeks on the chart, peaking at #68.  A live cut debuted 6 months later at #56, spending 14 weeks on the chart and peaking at #12.  (Close but no exploding cigar.)
