Look at this spaceship bunk bed a dad made for his kid

It took Pete Dearing 100 hours to build this rocket ship bunk bed from blueprints he purchased online. His kids love it.

From Sarah Vitak's story in Make:

Most of the buttons control real lights, sounds, fans, meters, and headlights. All the sounds are controlled via Raspberry Pi. Plus, Dearing wired in a couple sets of headphones with mics, so that the kids can communicate with each other just like real space explorers!

Even though it’s a rocket ship, the bunk bed has transformed into everything from a bus to a submarine during playtime. When asked if he gets to help pilot the ship, Dearing says, “Of course! I can’t fit into the cockpit easily, but I still get to wear headphones and join in.”
