This double bed automatically ROLLS mattress hogs back over to their side
Mattress hogging is a sad but all too real issue in modern society.
In a departure from tradition, couples are increasingly choosing to live together before marriage. Road-testing a relationship before you commit to a whole lifetime together makes real sense as it gives folks a sense of each others' flaws.
Sadly, taking up all the space in the bed is often one of these flaws.
Greedy partners will happily spread themselves across 90 per cent of the mattress, leaving their other half clinging o the edge for dear life. It's a real epidemic that threatens thousands of relationships each year - and finally, someone is taking a stand.
Ford has invented a mattress that will move your starfish of a boyfriend or girlfriend back to their side of the bed.
If your other half sneakily moves over in the night, they'll trigger the Lane Keeping Bed mattress's sensors and automatically be rolled over to their rightful place.
The science behind the bed was inspired by Ford's work with lane-centring technology in cars.
Sleep expert Dr Neil Stanley explained that while mattress hogs often don't even realise what they're doing, they could jeopardise their partner's sleep - and their relationship.
"Humans are most vulnerable when sleeping, so we're programmed to wake when something or someone touches us unexpectedly.
"If someone moves on to 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."
Sadly, Ford doesn't have any plans to bring the bed to the market any time soon but we're praying that someone else does because this is an invention that society badly needs.
