    A customer in the US used pretty much this set up to level the jigs and platforms they built their aeroplanes on.

    We used ultrasonics to measure the level of 'water' in the connected 'buckets' to within a couple of mm, hydraulics did the actual movement. Why go to all this trouble? If nothing else, gravity can assist in measuring precise angles.

    Couldn't the bed be made with three legs supporting a torsion box type table? It may not be level but any twisting moment would be eliminated.

    You could always make your own ferrofluid or Electrorheological fluid and have active suspension? but in practical terms, horse mats!
