UNDATED (CNN) -- Making the bed is a nightmare for nearly everyone. Now one inventor says he has the perfect solution, a bed that makes itself! But is it as dreamy as it sounds?
After all these centuries of making beds, finally someone's making a bed that makes itself. It is called the smart bed. Three seconds after it senses a human has left the bed, it begins making itself, up comes a little sideboard, then a mechanical arm pops up that gathers the cover, eventually the pillows are drawn up to make room; the whole thing takes about 50 seconds. Finally the pillows plop down.
Some think it's the answer to a problem which doesn't exist. But tell that to messy teenagers, like the one who took to YouTube to mimic her mom. She says, "You're gonna have to make this bed. This bed is not gonna make itself."Wanna bet?
A Spanish entrepreneur made the prototype. He's looking for financial backing. And who wouldn't want to snap their fingers like Mary Poppins and have beds make themselves or like George Jetson, get jettisoned out as the bed puts itself away.
The smart bed would require you to buy special bottom sheets that Velcro on as well as a special duvet and pillowcases that accommodate cords that enable the bedding to move.
No price has been put on the bed since it's still a prototype. But is the smart bed smart enough to handle a nocturnal apocalypse with sheets and pillows strewn about like bodies on a battlefield?
The bed that makes itself makes a lot of people skeptical. One person posted, "Yea, I can just see me getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and coming back to find my bed made!"
But you can always take it out of the automatic sensor mode and go manual, so you just push a button to make the bed.
Someone on YouTube has already put the smart bed to music, it's downright majestic but also a little creepy, to arise from slumber and see your bedding slither.
