There are few things we love more than domestic hacks. Technology that can help us do daily tasks around the home is a win in our book. Last week we showed you an eco-friendly light bulb that you can control with your smartphone, and before that we got excited about the possibility of controlling almost anything in your home with the touch of a button. Now, OHEA claims to bring the next step to fully automating your home: a bed that makes itself!
In a video that looks sort of like Capitol-esque propaganda (yes, we’re referencing The Hunger Games), you can see small mechanical arms straightening the duvet and pillows on a kid’s messy bed. Has technology really solved this relatively minor daily chore for us?
The bed can make itself automatically, starting the process three seconds after the bed is vacated, or manually, with the touch of a button. Special cords in the bedding are pulled on by the arms of the device, straightening even the most rumpled of beds. After the device is done working its magic, the bed looks as if it’s never been slept in.
Billing itself as a “smart bed,” this certainly could be a time saver. In just 50 seconds, you can have a perfectly made bed without lifting a finger except to maybe push a button.
You can’t yet purchase the bed or the specialized bedclothes and duvet required to run it, but it looks like you’ll be able to soon.
Is this awesome, or can you make your own darn bed? Is this too futuristic or the beginning of the uber-techy 21st century we have all been dreaming about? Let us know in the comments below or tweet at us.
