This. Changes. Everything: A Bed That Makes Itself

Okay so it doesn't actually change everything, that was a lie. I didn't get drunk last night. That...was also a lie. I'm the world's greatest lover. Now that -- that's just the God's honest truth and you can ask my girlfriend about last night if you don't believe me. "He passed out on the john doing a crossword puzzle." OH COME ON! This is a video of a robotic self-making bed. Will it try to smother you in your sleep? 100%.

When deployed, the self-tidying bed will release a small mechanical arm from a hidden area on the side and its two rollers will pull the cover or duvet up to the head of the bed. Your pillows aren't ignored either. They are straightened by cords attached to the pillowcases as they are elevated during the bed making process. When the cover is straight, the pillows fall back into place.

Oh man, I'm totally gonna get one. Then call those nutjobs from Ghost Hunters and convince them I've got the poltergeist of a hotel maid living in my bedroom. They'll totally believe it too. "God, they probably will." You think putting pillowcases over their heads when they're distracted then whipping them with fresh towels and yelling, "Housekeeping!" is going too far?

Hit the jump for a short but worthwhile video of the bed in action.

Thanks to Danny, who makes his bed the same was he did when he was a kid: just good enough to still get his allowance.
