NEW YORK, NY (CNN) - Making the bed is a nightmare for nearly everyone.  Now one inventor says he has the perfect solution-- a bed that makes itself! 

After all these centuries of making beds, finally someone's making a bed that makes itself.  It is called the smart bed.  Three seconds after it senses a human has left the bed, it begins making itself.  Up comes a little sideboard, and then a mechanical arm pops up that gathers the cover.  Eventually, the pillows are drawn up, and the whole thing takes about 50 seconds.

The smart bed would require you to buy special bottom sheets that velcro on as well as a special duvet and pillowcases that accommodate cords that enable the bedding to move.  No price has been put on the bed since it's still a prototype.
