Japanese gaming furniture company Bauhutte wants you to eat, breathe, and obviously, sleep video games with its electric gaming bed (spotted by Gizmodo) which is according to the company, “a forbidden layout for such degrading players”.
The electric gaming bed is just one part of Bauhutte’s furniture ecosystem dubbed “the ultimate gaming space,” which includes a motorized bed, a desk with a place to mount your monitors above, a mini-fridge, a clothes rack, and even a floating arm for your tablet in case you need more screen in your face. You know, everything a “self-degrading” player needs.
Last year, we covered Bauhutte’s other gaming bed configuration and thought, “Well, there’s no overshoot.” Then they went ahead and added motors and ample storage space for what appears to be a product called “Gaming Noodles”.
the BGB-100FA The electric bed is adjusted by two motors which change the position of your back, legs and feet. If you have ever seen a hospital bed or the beds advertised on Super late night TV, you will know what it is. The bed fits perfectly under the Bed desk BHD-1200BD so when you wake up you can raise the bed to a sitting position and get to work or play without having to get up.
According to the Japanese government Housing and land survey, the average living area of an apartment in Tokyo is approximately 65.9 m² (709 sq ft), with an average living area of 41 m² (441 sq ft). For context, your average apartment in Brooklyn is approximately 707 square feet with a living area of 351 square feet. That’s not a lot of room, especially for those who work from home. So why not officially consolidate your work, play, eat, and sleep spaces into one play/lifestyle/bedtime station?
From the looks alone, this electric play bed doesn’t seem like the most ergonomic product on the market – it’s not. watch comfortable on the lower back, at least.
Now it’s easy to dismiss the Bauhutte play bed. I wouldn’t blame you, it has a bed layout on the website simply called “Anime” and describes the bed’s origin story as “Supreme Corrupted Life with Bed as a Base for Living”.
Obviously the company is aiming to depreciate, but this is kind of a cool set of products for anyone with very limited space or limited mobility. (At least, if it’s at all comfortable.) The bed and mattress are around $670, and the bed desk is only around $200, though it looks like those products are only available at Japan.
I highly recommend going down the rabbit hole of the Bauhutte Amazon page to find other amazing products like the couch chair, office tentor this hoodie that has a where to sleep your cat. Incredible.
