Ohea, the smart bed
Ascencio Zubeldia Jauregui, a 56-year-old Basque entrepreneur has created an smart bed equipped with a device that enables it to automatically straighten the bedding, once the occupant has gotten up and left the bed unmade.
Under the name of Ohea, the Basque word for bed, the smart bed straightens mechanically the duvet, the pillowcase, and the pillow while the bottom sheet is kept straight since it is attached with Velcro to the mattress cover.
At this time, the smart bed is no more than a prototype and the Basque entrepreneur is looking for funding in order to develop this project.
According to the Basque entrepreneur, using Ohea does not make the electrical bill go up, since the bed only operates for fifty seconds each day, just the time it takes to make the bed.
Activate the mechanism
There are two ways to activate the smart bed. If you set the switch on the bed-frame to manual, pressing the "go" button on the remote control causes the bed mechanism to begin to stretch the bedding out and put the bed clothes in order.
If chosen automatic, three seconds after the person gets up, the mechanism is activated and automatically begins to make the bed, straightening the bed clothes and putting them in order.
The bed is sent with two complete sets of bedclothes: two comforters, two bottom sheets, and four small pillowcases which allows the bedding to be exchanged.
