WE all know how annoying it is sleeping with a bed hogger who steals the duvet or rolls onto your side – or both.
There’s nothing worse than a bad night’s sleep caused by your partner – but all that could be a thing of the past.
A new smart bed has been unveiled which could save you from a bad night’s sleep, and save your relationship too.
Made by Ford, the car company is using the same technology which keeps cars in the middle of the road to keep the bed hogger on their side.
Called the Lane Keeping Aid on the road, they’ve devised the Lane-Keeping Bed to keep ‘selfish sleepers’ on their side.
We all know there is an invisible line in the middle of bed which is crossed at your partner’s peril, but now the bed will sense when they’ve over stepped The Line.
A rotating mattress adjusts to make sure you both have equal sides of the bed, with pressure sensors and motion control technology ensuring you both have ample space throughout the night.
Describing their latest invention, Ford said: “Smart bed rolls selfish sleepers back into place.
“For those who share their bed with a “space invader”, precious hours can be lost simply trying to reclaim a fair share of the mattress.
“One solution could be Ford’s “Lane-Keeping Bed”, that applies car tech know-how to ensuring that even the most selfish bed mate stays “in lane” through the night.”
Sleep expert and author, Dr Neil Stanley, who worked on the project, explained: “When sleeping together, many couples each have less space than a small child has in a single bed.
“Humans are most vulnerable when sleeping, so we’re programmed to wake when something or someone touches us unexpectedly.
“If someone moves onto your side of the bed this defence mechanism will kick in and you’ll have a broken night, often while they continue to sleep soundly.
“I’ve seen it ruin relationships.”
Sadly the bed is not for sale just yet, but was created as part of a new series called ‘Interventions’.
