This seemingly normal bed with a stylish, minimal design, is not just another bed.
The bed is equipped with a mechanism that straightens the bedding automatically. Introduced in 2012, by OHEA, a Spain-based company, the “smart bed” is promising to relieve its owners from the daily chore of “making the bed”.
The process takes about 50 seconds and the result is more than satisfactory.
According to OHEA, when the bed-making mechanism activates, a lid on each side of the bed opens and a mechanical arm with two rollers emerges on each side at the foot of the bed. After positioning the lateral cord that holds the duvet between the two rollers, the arm pulls the duvet up to the head of the bed.
Once the cord is fully extended, the arm descends and the lid closes. At the same time, the pillows are straightened by cords attached to the pillowcases after which the panels rotate elevating the pillows; and once the upper coverlet has been stretched to the head of the bed, the pillows fall back onto it.
