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?

    Well, not brilliant - but "slightly interesting" isn't an option.
    3 seconds seems a bit sooner then I would want, but if you want you bed to be as unhygienic as possible with as little effort as possible, this is a good product...

    But I bet the cost is astronomical, and also, getting in and out of bed with that metal railing might not be particularly welcoming.

    I need that bed im so lazy when it comes to cleaning period. But also that would be a bad idea to get that bed.Because that would make me even more lazier.Then soon i would forget how to make a bed.

    People need to not be so lazy. And, when a child is told to make their bed and they actually do it, it gains trust and neatness and responsibility in life.

    It's very innovative in some ways, and not so good in others. JUST Like everything else! So many people comments are about how lazy this makes us. It's a Spanish company, not an american one... Just pointing that out. There was a story a couple of months ago about how making the bed in hotels puts a lot of strain on the housekeeping staff. This would be a perfect solution to that AND a feature that could be seen as an advertising point for the hotel. But it could potentially put more people out of work, and that is not so good.
