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.’
