Do you and your partner keep tumbling too often in bed over sharing of the mattress? As much as you love cosying up, it can get annoying to wake up in the middle of the night and pulling the blanket which has been partly or completely hijacked by your partner. But to put an end to all these, Ford is working on a bed that will roll up your partner back to their side.

Dr. Neil Stanley who is a sleep expert explained the functioning of a human body while they are sleeping. "When sleeping together, many couples each have less space than a small child has in a single bed.

He also mentioned that this happening often can even ruin some relationships. This new bed in the making will have snoozers and a conveyor which will gently roll the person back to their side.
Making of this bed was a part of an exploratory project but unless there is enough demand for it, it may not see a general release. Ford has been impressing people with its technological use in making cars and the Lane-Centring bed is still not made for purchase. If there is enough demand for this product, then Ford's technology could very well enter our bedrooms. Are you up for this bed which ensures you a sound sleep by putting away the bed hoggers?
