Making the bed every morning can feel cumbersome, especially when you’re running late.
But the SmartDuvet, a comforter insert that automatically straightens your blanket, could make the whole process easier.
Sound magical? The concept is actually pretty simple — the insert is inflatable.
The SmartDuvet comes in a lattice shape, and slips inside your duvet cover. While you sleep, it remains uninflated. But when you want to make your bed in the morning, you attach the insert to a hose, which connects to a small battery-powered pump that blows air into the duvet to inflate it.
And voilá, it places the duvet back into position. The box can sense when the device is fully inflated — at that point, it shuts off automatically. Another button lets the air back out. The SmartDuvet also connects to wifi and pairs with a compatible app, which allows the user to schedule a preset time for their comforter to make itself every morning.
The SmartDuvet launched on Kickstarter in late November and is about $3,000 away from its $22,000 goal as of writing. Early backers can purchase one at any size for $199, but it will later retail for $309 to $349 (depending on the size).
If freeing yourself from your daily bed-making obligation is worth that hefty price tag, the SmartDuvet could be a dream come true.
