Self-making bed goes on sale
Telegraph ^ | 6-14-12

A Spanish furniture company OHEA, has invented an electronic bed that makes itself after you get out of it.

The Smart Bed features an automatic system that is activated three seconds after the last person gets out of the bed.

Mechanical arms extend on each of the sides to grab the edges of the duvet, while a set of rollers slowly smooth down the bed. At the same time levers then lift and straighten the pillows.

The entire process takes less than a minute...

spain has finally contributed to western civilization.

calling that a “self making bed” gives it a good bit more credit than it deserves. it’s more of an “automatic blanket straightener”,

Mmmmm. That's sounds just like the 3 Stooges' baby washing machine.

Don’t the Spanish sleep with a top sheet or blankets?

I’ve never understood the fetish for making beds. Leave em, you’re just gonna mess it all up when you get back in anyway.

Yep, no one sees the damn thing anyway. As long as everything is clean it can stay messed up.

This is so stupid! Making a bed is one of the easiest chores in housekeeping.

Generally they use a top sheet, although there are people who use only the duvet or perhaps a blanket. I think the principle of this device, however, is to cover up everything with the duvet.

That said, I can hardly wait until they’re commercially available. Although I’m not sure something with mechanical arms would be much of a fashion accent for my room...

Sounds pretty hideous doesn’t it? What if someone accidentally pushed the button/Obama thingamajigee in the middle of the night?

I’m one of those on the side of bedmakers. I won’t leave the house until the bed is made.

I’ve read that you should always open up the sheets in the morning for a period of time prior to making the bed. Just to be sure it is aired out sufficiently, I wait about 19 hours; but by then, it is time to go to sleep again.

If they start selling that here, Obama will have another thing to blame for the high Unemployment Rate.
