(CNN) - Making the bed is a nightmare for nearly everyone.
Now one inventor says he has the perfect solution: a bed that makes itself!
But is it as dreamy as it sounds?
After all these centuries of making beds, finally someone is making a bed that makes itself.
It's called the Smart Bed.
Three seconds after it sense a human has left the bed, it begins making itself. Up comes a little sideboard, then a mechanical arm pops up that gathers the covers, and eventually the pillows are drawn up to make room. The whole thing takes about 50 seconds. Then, the pillows plop down.
"It's the answer to a problem which doesn't exist," said one critic of the bed.
Tell that to messy teenagers.
A Spanish entrepreneur made the prototype. He's looking for financial backing.
And who wouldn't' want to snap their fingers like Mary Poppins and have beds make themselves?
Or like George Jetson getting jettisoned out as the bed puts itself away?
The Smart Bed would require you to buy special bottom sheets that Velcro on as well as a special duvet and pillow cases that accommodate cords that enable the bedding to move.
No price has been put on the bed since it's still a prototype.
The bed that makes itself makes a lot of people skeptical. One person posted, "Yeah, I can just see me getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and coming back to find my bed made!"
But you can always take it out of the automatic sensor mode and go manual, so you just push a button to make the bed.
Someone on YouTube has already put the Smart Bed to music. It's downright majestic, but also a little creepy to arise from slumber and see your bedding slither.
