Markets in Everything: Smart Beds


Daily Mail -- "The simple act of making a bed is, for most of us, the first chore of each day.  Now the relentless march of technology threatens to bring to an end even this most straightforward of domestic tasks. Spanish firm OHEA has unveiled its Smart Bed, an electronic bed that makes itself (see video above)."

Please don't tell me your complaining about this. Let me know when they make something to clean the rest of the house automatically.

Woah woah woah...back the train up. You're supposed to make your bed every day?!

What's next, you're going to tell me the dishes need to be washed every day?

'Making the bed' is a simple act for me. I shut the bedroom door.

Dumb.

1. Can't move pillows.
2. Blanket must remained tucked in at the bottom
3. Looks like one must also use a specific type of blanket.

Well, with everyone in the household being so busy, a bed that makes itself will add five minutes to your day.
That's thirty five minutes a week; more than 30 hours a year!
I have no idea how much it costs, but at a mere $10 per hour, that's a $300 annual return. If it costs $2,000, that's a 15% return on investment.
Where are you going to get that kind of return today?
