Smart Bed Tidies Itself for Lazy Human

by Lambert Varias

Here’s a bed that rearranges its sheets and pillows on its own. Because tidying up your bed is too hard. Not that I think there’s a point to doing so, but still. Pixar tried to warn us, but it seems we’re still devolving into gigantic sloths. Although from an engineer’s standpoint a self-tidying bed could be an interesting project.

Made by Spanish furniture maker OHEA – its website is down as of this writing, I wonder why – the bed isn’t actually that smart. When it senses that its occupant has left, two mechanical arms with rollers smooth the blanket while two pairs of cords lift up the pillows and put them back down just as the arms below are finishing their part. Teamwork! Yeah! Skip to about 0:50 in the video below if you don’t want to be caught watching a little girl sleep:

OHEA says it will start selling 5 different sizes of the bed this month. It’s a unique product, but it’s easy to see that there’s a lot of room for improvement. For one thing, the bed can only fix itself up to a certain point. For example, the pillows can’t be anywhere but on top for them to be picked up, and the arms only fix bed sheets. But perhaps that’s a good thing. Let’s just make our beds. Or ask a fellow human to do it. Hey, it’s exercise!
