This motorized gaming bed lets you rest your gamer head

Here at The Verge, we sometimes like to write about gaming thrones, whether they're shaped like scorpions, semi-circles, or... well, I don't know how to describe it. But the thing with Throne is that the weight of the crown is often heavy - being an MVP and playing the game every round can be tiring. Thankfully, Gizmodo has just one thing to help you with this: a motorized gaming bed that gets you from sleeping position to panning position with the press of a button, while keeping your gaming setup within arms' reach. Keeps it inside. put it in

The Bohutte Electric Gaming Bed and Bed Desk are made to work together: Your rig moves to the adjustable desk, which is designed to put a bed under it, and the bed frame is designed to allow your back and knees to sit. Designed to lift in position. Uses motors. (Although, admittedly, not very ergonomic). After your gaming session, you can use the remote stored on the side of your bed to lull yourself back into a sleeping position, so you can curl up on your tired eyes and relax. It can raise or lower individual parts of the head and legs separately, giving you some configurable sleeping and sitting positions.

There is also a fleet of accessories. Bauhutte's website suggests pairing your gaming bed with an "energy wagon" that packs gamer fuel, a combo clothing rack, table and storage unit (for your gaming peripherals, of course), or even that stores a "Ninja Hussey 4G". Makes sure you're as secretive IRL in the game as you are. Bauhutte isn't just selling you a bed/gaming chair - it's selling you a lifestyle. It's worth noting that the company has been building up to this point: In 2020 there was a non-motorized version of the gaming bed setup, and in 2021 we heard about its gaming mattress. Now, it has all come together in motorized bliss.

While I don't think this product is very comfortable as a bed or chair, I don't think it's worth writing about at all. For someone living in an extremely small space like a bedroom or studio apartment, this can be a great way to fit both a bed and a desk in a really limited area. It may also be useful for people with limited mobility; Getting out of bed with some mechanical assistance can be very helpful.

Gizmodo reports that the bed frame costs about $480 (or 59,800 yen), and an Amazon seller lists it with a gaming mattress for about $680 (84,709 yen). The frame is about 78 inches long and 37 inches wide, which should let it hold a US twin-size mattress. Unfortunately, it seems that Bohutte is primarily focused on selling bedding in its home country of Japan, and the single frame is sold on Amazon Japan.

Thankfully, there are plenty of other motorized bed frames out there—though it's hard to say whether it'll feel the same way without the associated Desk and Gamer branding.
