A Bed That Makes Itself

If you dread making your bed, this gizmo will free you from the daily chore.

If unmade beds are a bone of contention in your home, OHEA, a Spanish furniture company, has a solution. They created a bed frame that straightens out pillows and a blanket in only 50 seconds.
When I first heard about this smart bed, my inner child was cheering. Back in the day, my parents nagged us daily to make our beds.
But after a closer look, I realized the OHEA Smart Bed wouldn’t pass muster with my parents.

It’s a very basic bed-making system that straightens out a single blanket using mechanical arms and rollers.  While this is happening, there are two levers that gently “reset” your pillows by placing them on top of the flattened cover.

You can see the OHEA Smart Bed in action in this video.

This isn’t really bed-making. To begin with, there’s no sheet and blanket tucking, except at the bottom of the bed, and what if you sleep with piles of covers? This system can only juggle a thin duvet and two measly pillows.

Plus, if you kick your blanket or pillows out of place, the bed frame won’t be able to reset them.

But, hey, I imagine the first dishwasher wasn’t so great either.
Hopefully the next version of this smart bed will be able to neaten up piles of blankets. Plus address the chore of putting on the pesky bottom sheet.
