A Self-Making Bed: Brilliant or Bad Idea?

Have you ever woken up in the morning and wished that your bed would just make itself? Well, a Spanish furniture company has got you covered.

OHEA’s new “smart bed” can function on either automatic or manual mode. Under automatic mode, three seconds after the last person gets out of the bed, mechanical arms begin pulling the pillows, sheets, and blankets back into place. The entire bed-making process takes about 50 seconds from start to finish. The same mechanics take place in manual mode, but they are initiated by a remote control.

According to the company’s website, there are a few built in safety features. “If the mechanism is activated when the person is still in bed, the device will not function and if pressure is applied to the bed while it is being made (with the mechanism functioning) the device stops immediately until the remote control is again activated (if the switch is set to the manual mode).”

Overall, the OHEA smart bed seems pretty great! However, it does have one big flaw: the bed only works with the company’s bedding. On the plus side, though, inserts do allow you to adjust the comforter seasonally.

So, what do you think SodaHeads? Is OHEA’s self-making smart bed brilliant or a bad idea?

    I think we should be working on fixing bigger problems than a messy bed in the morning.Like fixing the Ozone hole, feeding the hungry, health care, curing diseases, housing and education, stuff like that is way more important to worry about and more important to solve then a messy bed!

    I used to worry about what the firemen would think if they had to come into the house one day and saw our unmade, messy bed. ("The wife must be a real slob!") So, I would start making the bed as soon as I woke up, even though my then husband was still sleeping. It drove him nuts but I told him "Just go back to sleep and stay on your side of the bed." After a while, my ex started making the bed himself..........

    This thing could possibly kill you in your sleep. Also, technology is already killing our brains. Ever read "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury[R.I.P]?

    Oh yes! Should include sheet changes too!!!! Especially when you have three Chihuahua/Terriers jumping all over the bed while you "attempt" to change the sheets!!!!

    They need to make one that will work with any bedding, that would make it a huge hit, regardless of price.
  • Lovita rcardon 2012/06/19 09:33:12

    Ah, could we renegotiate on the price please? My dogs love to chew on the sheets......

    We have enough to do in the morning yet those of us who believe in neatness in our homes still take the time and effort to make our beds in the morning and teach our children to do the same. Why not have a bed that self makes.

    Ok, it's not that it's really a bad idea, but I just don't see it as "brilliant".

    There wasn't a "ridiculous" option though.

    Ok, I get the point. It is brilliant for the disabled. But making my bed every morning is one of the few disiplines I have.

    If it's really that important to you, then pay what's guaranteed to be several thousand dollars on the bed that re-organizes itself. I'll hold out for the beds that order beer, food and hookers and teleports them into your room.

    But I doubt it would work for me since the moment I wake up all of my pillows and bedding are scattered across the floor... so unless it has arms it won't work for me... But still... I want it GIF
