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'm not sure I understand. I was just pointing out both sides of the issue.

    but that totally ruins that old saying of "If you're gonna make your bed, you have to sleep in it too"

    Every time you go to the bathroom or for whatever reason, the bed gets made. Also, i didn't see a sheet, which i must have and in the winter i use a blanket and a comforter..so that's 3 covers and my husband and i are thrashers to the covers get a work out.

    But don't you just love a nicely made bed? It feels and looks so welcoming and softer than a bed with sheets thrown around.

    Amazing idea but lame ! Soon we'll have our bed made for us sans a maid and
    they'll find a way for us to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without leaving the self made bed. LoL ... Honestly, I'm not a diehard but I like to make my own bed and do my own cleaning. I am very neat and I like things done my way. The buck stops for me with all this silly modern technology.

    You think parents are irresponsible now. Just wait until a few leave their babies on the bed and the poor thing gets 'made' to death.

    Not only that but are we really becoming that lazy that we can't make the bed on our own? If I'm not gonna make my bed then it's gonna look like crap, simple as that.
  • cynsity 2012/06/11 03:35:10
    if they could make one that would work with like 10 blanket thickness and whats with the pillows. i have 4 I pile up all around so if they are attached the that won't work... still for a gust room or a kids room it would be a huge time saver

    When I wake up..I'm always too lazy to make the bed..
  • Tara 2012/06/11 02:51:18
    I don't make my bed because,I just get,right back in it that night. I like it made, i'm just too lazy to do it myself so I'm all for a machine doing it. :)

    Good way to get the kids out of bed before school. Push the button. They get up, or get wrapped up.

    Another modern inconvenience. I read of a study that determined that many of our modern appliances and "labor" saving devices were not that, if you count the time and cost of purchasing, using, cleaning, and repairing, we would be better off by hand. This is definitely one I chalk up to that. I know there are some appliances that are truly a labor saver, but as much as I love gadgetry, this does not intrigue me at all.
  • gracious43 2012/06/10 23:39:03
    I say that because I would shell out big bucks for one that really worked. But I thrash around too much and my blankets aren't that neat in the morning. The are more like wads of blankets all around the bed.
