Smartduvet turns any bed into a bed that makes itself

My mother would call it the height of laziness, on par with getting food delivered or using a remote control for the telly, but there is now a device that takes any duvet and turns it into a bed that makes itself.

The Smartduvet, now live now on Kickstarter, features a compressor pump and a lattice-shaped structure that sits inside your duvet cover on top of the duvet. A set of little rubber clips holds the duvet, the Smartduvet, the cover and a top sheet together at the corners, and another set holds the bottom of the whole arrangement to the foot of the bed.

A little tube connects the compressor to the hollow lattice structure, and when that gets inflated, the whole thing flattens out, making the bed for you.

If you find it a bit distracting to have the compressor make the bed while you're in the room, fear not; there's an app, believe it or not, that gets the thing to make your bed at a specified time.

At US$289 for a queen size (other sizes are available), it's a pretty pricey gimmick, and it doesn't take care of straightening out a fitted sheet, which is probably the slightly more labor intensive part of the bed-making process. Still, this system might make its way into a few bachelor pads if the Kickstarter campaign is successful.

The Smartduvet is demonstrated in the pitch video below.

Hahaha.. the ultimate lazy toy, the cats will make short work of this thing. Besides only deep winter with the windows open would justify that thickness comforter is ridiculous. Doesn't work with simple satin sheets....Also need to remove and re-install for laundry, though I image the lazy lout will leave it go for a month or two, maybe more.
