Some people think we are turning into a nation of couch potatoes and not getting enough exercise. We may be planted on our sofas and not get out enough.
This can be especially true if you are a gamer, where you can get caught up in storming the castle, pulling the heist or batting the alien invasion. You feel you cannot turn in until you have reached the next level and finished the game.
It’s a shame you must go to bed at night or rise in the morning, wasting valuable gaming time. But what if you didn’t have to get out of bed at all? What if you could carry on gaming while still lounging around in your bedroom?
It seems, through ground-breaking Japanese technology, your wish has finally come true. The geniuses at Bauhütte, a retailer specialising in gaming-related furniture, has just brought out their incredible `gaming bed` Saving you the trouble of moving from the bed to your gaming desk. Allowing you to cut out the middleman.
The cutting-edge crib, which the company refers to as a “perpetual installation”, lets you start gaming the moment you wake up, without having to move.
You will be able to attach your PC or games console to two monitors on a desk, at the bottom of the bed. The crib comes with an arm to hold your device, be it a phone or tablet, as well as headphone hangers, a controller basket, an elevated headboard and over-sized cushion, preventing you getting neck strain or a bad back when playing.
The gaming bed has shelves and drawers for your snacks, so you don’t get hungry, and cup holders, a bottle rack and an energy drinks cabinet so you don’t get thirsty or tired. It is also complete with a side table and blankets, providing optimum comfort, and a lack of effort, while gaming.
Unfortunately, you are still going to have to get up to go to the bathroom, but it is only a matter of time before they rectify the situation.
The basic, no-frills variety gaming bed will set you back about £470. If you were to buy all the products, looking for the entire bed gaming experience, it could cost you around £820. Quite a price to pay for never having to get out of bed and keep playing. But gaming beds are rising in popularity and, for hardcore gamers, it seems like a dream come true.
