How handy would this be?

One of the leading car brands Ford are working on a new bed that sounds like a game-changer.

They’re testing out the same technology that can keep a car driving in the middle of the road and have labelled it a “lane-keeping bed”. If the sensors on the bed detect that one of the people have moved over to the far side, it’ll push them back onto their own side.

Anthony Ireson who is the marketing director for Ford Europe said in a statement:

“We thought that showing how similar thinking could be applied to a bed, would be a great way to highlight to drivers a technology that they might not previously have been aware of.”

It’s only in a prototype stage at the moment but if developed, it could help you get that perfect night’s sleep:

Dr Neil Stanley, an independent sleep expert and author of How to Sleep Well said:

“When sleeping together, many couples each have less space than a small child has in a single bed.

“Humans are most vulnerable when sleeping, so we’re programmed to wake when something or someone touches us unexpectedly. If someone moves onto your side of the bed this defence mechanism will kick in and you’ll have a broken night, often while they continue to sleep soundly. I’ve seen it ruin relationships.”
