Perhaps the secret to making sure that you never wake up on the wrong side of the bed is, well, making it. And if this is so, the world’s first automated bed might as well be at the top of your must-have, lust list.
OHEA, a Spanish furniture design house, is set to release one of their most exciting inventions: the OHEA Smart Bed. This convenient piece would retail between $1,500 and $4,000 (Sh152,000 and Sh405,000) and uses the latest in mattress technology that beats the traditional coils and foam.
If you’re not a fan of making your bed each morning, you’ll appreciate the fact that this smart bed does it for you in less than 60 seconds at the touch of a button.
Chords lift the pillows up simultaneously so that the blanket can be fully stretched and just when you thought the bed was made, the blanket is tucked in and the pillows returned to the bed’s surface.
I’ll be the first to admit that I may not enjoy the process of bed-making so this automated bed did pique my curiosity.
You’ve made your bed, now lie in it
But that being said, I can’t help but wonder what would happen if I liked dressing my bed in a gazillion pillows. Would the machine place them just how I like it? And can the pillows be fluffed? Can I adjust how tight the sheets are tucked in? And what about throws – are they part of the package?
This design feature does seem interesting, convenient and very modern and may very well be ideal for hospitals and nursing homes. But before you go coughing up Sh400,000 on a bed-making bed, consider just how important it is for you to be free of ever tucking in sheets and spreading out duvets for the rest of your life.
After all, you know what they say: You’ve made your bed, now lie in it.
