Japanese gaming furniture company Bauhutte wants you to eat, breathe and, of course, sleep video games with its electric gaming bed (identified by Gizmodo) which is, according to the company, “a forbidden layout for these self-degrading players”.
The electric gaming bed is just part of Bauhutte’s furniture ecosystem dubbed the ‘Ultimate Gaming Space’, which includes a motorized bed, a table with a place to mount your monitors, a mini fridge, clothes rack and even a floating arm for your tablet. in case you need more screen on your face. You know, everything a “self-degrading” player needs.
Last year we covered the others gamer bed setup (opens in new tab) and we thought to ourselves, “Well, there’s no getting over it.” So they went ahead and added engines and ample storage for what appears to be a product called “Gaming Noodles”.
The BGB-100FA Electric bed is adjusted by two motors that change the position of the back, legs and feet. If you’ve ever seen a hospital bed or those beds advertised in super late night tv, you will know what it is. The bed fits perfectly under the BHD-1200BD Bed Table so that when you wake up, you can lift the bed to a sitting position and start working or playing without having to get up.
According to the Japanese government Housing and Land Surveying, the average living space of an apartment in Tokyo is approximately 65.9 m² (709 sq ft), with an average living space of 41 m² (441 sq ft). For context, your average apartment in brooklyn is about 707 square feet with a living space of 351 square feet. That’s not a lot of space, especially for those who work from home. So why not officially consolidate your workspaces, games, food and sleep into an elite gaming/lifestyle/bedtime station?
From looks alone, this electric gaming bed doesn’t seem like the most ergonomic product on the market – no look comfortable in the lower back, at least.
Now it’s easy to dispose of the Bauhutte play bed. I wouldn’t blame him, he has a bed layout on the website just called ‘Anime’ and describes the bed’s origin story as “Supreme Corrupted Life with Bed as a Basis for Living”.
Of course, the company intends to be self-deprecating, but it’s a cool set of products for anyone with super limited space or limited mobility. (At least, if it’s comfortable.) The bed and mattress are about $670, and the desk is just $200, though it appears these products are only available in Japan.
I strongly recommend heading down the rabbit hole of the Bauhutte Amazon page to find other amazing products like sofa chair, table tentor this sweatshirt that has a place for your cat to sleep. Incredible.
