The International Exhibition of Inventions is currently running in Geneva, and every year the show manages to attract over 700 of the world’s most creative inventors. So what does USA TODAY feel is the most notable invention to feature? That would be Selfy, the self-making bed. Its creator, Enrico Berruti, was actually thinking of people who are too sick or injured to make the bed on their own, but admits his own laziness was also a factor for designing it.

The bed sheets are connected to a couple of fasteners which roll along a set of metal rails attached to each side of the bed. Once the sheets are completely spread out, the metal rails automatically lower, creating a neat finish. The idea seems promising, and hopefully Enrico’s invention will catch the eye of a manufacturer who’s willing to hire a marketing team to come up with a better name than ‘Selfy the Easy Bed.’

    I wonder if a person is too sick to make his/her own bed, how can they manage those metal hurdles on the bedside… 😀

    Thats an invention for rich, who are lazybones. But then too its a nice use of technology & creativity.

    I could never understand bedmaking. You make it , mess it up, repeat, make, mess, repeat. I prefer the mess, repeat, mess system.

    I believe that the bedrails are at first pushed in flush with the bed to allow the person to get out. Then once the person is off the bed there are buttons at the foot of the bed to bring the rails out and to commence the straightening of sheet and bed making.
    The invention is a grand idea but it needs work from what i can see. Unless a blanket and sheet are somehow attached together at the side of the rails to allow for the bed to be completely made and not just with a sheet i don’t see much value in it. Also how is it tucked?
    Nevertheless its worthwhile replicating something like this on my own bed at home, cuz i sure hate making beds.
    For my teenage son this technology would be a GOd send. LOL

    Think “The Fifth Element” people – Bruce Willis had a bed that made itself, science fiction is how we give ourselves ideas of what can be done. This bed will be the way of the future, it’ll be the rich who have real people making their beds, and the rest of us poor schlums will have the Selfy Bed. Wait and see.

    This invention looks really great. Now, I wonder how much this kind of bed costs.
