We like to write about gaming thrones here at The Verge on occasion, whether they’re shaped like scorpions, semi-circles, or… well, I’m not sure how to characterize this one. But the issue about thrones is that they come with a lot of baggage – being MVP and getting the game’s best player every round can be exhausting. Thankfully, Gizmodo has the solution: a motorized gaming bed that shifts you from sleeping to pwning at the touch of a button while keeping your gaming setup within reach.
The Bauhutte Electric Gaming Bed and Bed Desk are designed to function together: your computer sits on the adjustable desk, which is designed to fit beneath a bed, and the bed frame utilizes motors to raise your back and legs into a seated posture (though, admittedly, not a very ergonomic one). You can use a remote stored on the side of your bed to lower yourself back into a sleeping posture after your gaming session, so you can curl up and rest your tired eyes. It can also independently raise and lower the head and feet portions, offering you a variety of sleeping and sitting positions.
A fleet of accessories is also available. According to Bauhutte’s website, you can complement your gaming bed with a “energy wagon” that stores gamer fuel, a combination clothing rack, table, and storage unit (for your gaming peripherals, of course), or even a “ninja onesie 4G” that ensures you’re as stealthy in real life as you are in the game. Bauhutte is selling you a way of life, not simply a bed or a gaming chair. It’s worth noting that the company appears to have been building up to this point: a non-motorized version of the gaming bed arrangement was released in 2020, and the gaming mattress was announced in 2021. It’s all come together now to create motorized bliss.
While I doubt this product would be particularly pleasant as a bed or a chair, I don’t think it’s fair to dismiss it completely. For someone who lives in a small place, such as a single bedroom or studio apartment, this could be a good method to cram a bed and a desk into a small space. It could also be beneficial to persons who have limited movement; mechanical aid in getting out of bed could be extremely beneficial.
According to Gizmodo, the bed frame alone costs roughly $480 (or 59,800 yen), and it costs around $680 (84,709 yen) with a gaming mattress from one Amazon seller. The frame is approximately 78 inches long and 37 inches wide, allowing it to accommodate a US twin-size mattress. Unfortunately, it appears like Bauhutte is primarily focused in selling the bed in Japan, as the solo frame is now unavailable on Amazon Japan.
There are lots of other motorized bed frames available, however it’s difficult to say whether they’d feel the same without the desk and gamer branding.
