High-Tech Duvet Could Mean You'll Never Have To Fight For The Cover Again
| Last updated
It's an age-old problem; you're in bed with your partner only to wake up in the middle of the night to find them snugly wrapped up in the entire duvet while you are a shivering mess. Well, that could all be about to change thanks to the 'infinite duvet':
That's right, it's a duvet that promises to keep you covered at all times and could even save some rocky marriages at the same time.
Designed by the boffins at tech firm Simba, the futuristic bed features a roller system in the base to ensure the cover is always evenly distributed.
As you turn in your sleep during the night, the revolving duvet moves with you, feeding through a series of rollers and tensioning systems, before feeding out the other side. Genius.
The company came up with it after finding that 'duvet stealing' was one of the top causes of bedtime conflict between couples.
Simba's study of 2,000 adults revealed that one in four people believe a restless night caused by a duvet-stealing partner can make them see red, with a third infuriated by a 'blanket bandit'.
The study also found that three in 10 people feel tensions rise when they come home to an untidy bedroom or unmade bed.
While one in six have ended relationships over their sleeping habits. Jeez.
Speaking about the nifty design, Simba's CEO Steve Reid said: "Duvet stealing is a sore subject among British couples - a bedroom habit that's the catalyst for hundreds of arguments.
"Combine this with a healthy dose of festive season stress for good measure.
"Whether it's the pandemonium of having everyone under one roof, keeping the house tidy or the pressure of cooking, each can keep us from being our usual calm, well-rested selves.
"We thought it could be fun to explore how we might put some of these tensions to bed."
But it's not just the rolling system that is impressive. The bed, dubbed the 'Duvet Diplomat', is also fit with a remote controlled 'self-making' and steam-cleaning function.
However, don't get too excited; it's currently in the design stage and won't be available - if ever - for some time.
Mr Reid added: "When you sleep better, you are more likely to make better decisions, take less risks and start the day in a more positive and peaceful frame of mind.
"So, for those who can't wait for a futuristic sleep solution like the Duvet Diplomat, Simba's temperature-regulating Hybrid Duvet with space-inspired Stratos technology has everything you need to prevent sleepless nights this Christmas."
