aking a bed, apparently, can be quite exhausting. That's why Spanish furniture maker OHEA is touting a new "smart bed" to relieve you of this tiresome daily chore. The bed makes itself, in just 50 seconds. Press a button and the duvet is stretched back into place by robot arms that glide slowly from the foot of the bed to the head. The pillows are lifted up and stretched with the help of internal cords, then gently dropped back on top of the covers. You can even program the bed — whose cost has not been publicly announced — to make itself anytime it's unoccupied for three seconds. Source: New Scientist
