are waterbeds still a thing?

I had a waterbed in college and for a couple years after.  They are nice and warm in the winter, but they are hard to get out of.  You can also feel 'stuck' in them a little.

I think memory foam and latex kind of killed the demand for waterbeds, which have some practical limitations.  They were fun for their time, though.

that would worry me too. Lot of water

I had a leak once.  The leaks don't leak much at all if you aren't on the bed itself, but when you apply your bodyweight, they start to let water out a bit.  Not a huge rush of it, but enough so that you jump off the bed and get a repair kit or a new mattress.

With my leak, I decided that I wanted a new mattress that had foam in it to stop the wave action from being too wavy.   When I moved to San Francisco, I bought a softside waterbed, which had foam around the outside and then you laid individual tubes of water within the foam exterior, and that made waves less of a thing,   It also looked like a real bed.
