If you find making your bed in the morning a tedious chore, then good news for you. Spanish firm OHEA has come up with a smart bed that will make itself within 50 seconds after you get up.
How does it work? The bottom sheet is attached via Velcro to the mattress cover, keeping the sheet in place. A mechanical arm on each side of the bed includes a roller which carries the blanket to the head of the bed. The pillows are lifted as the blanket approaches, then lowered once the blanket has been placed underneath.
A switch at the foot of the bed allows the bed’s self-straightening function to be set manually or automatically. If you’re too
lazy busy to manually activate the bed, you can just set it to ‘automatic’ and the bed will make itself three seconds after you get out of the bed.
For safety reasons, the self-straightening mode won’t activate if pressure is applied or if someone is still in the bed.

The smart beds and their specialty beddings will be available in five sizes beginning next month. Prices will be announced later.
Personally, I don’t think this bed is for me. Sure, the novelty factor is nice. But I like sticking my feet out of the blanket, putting my feet up on a pillow, and hugging another pillow. Besides, the blanket moving by itself makes me feel as if I have a resident ghost in my bedroom. How about you?
