Are gamers seriously so lazy nowadays that they can’t even get up to launch a game? Apparently so, as Bauhutte, the Japanese company that’s made a name for itself with furniture designed for gamers, has now introduced an electric gaming bed, one that’s designed to sit in front of the manufacturer’s previously released “bed desk.” Using a dedicated remote, users can adjust the wire frame’s two adaptable positions, turning the mattress into a comfy recliner that allows them to jump right into a game or surf the web immediately upon waking. It doesn’t seem like this product is intended for release outside of Japan, but Bauhutte’s electric gaming bed should be available for foreigners to purchase through import shops like Tokyo Otaku mode.

The bizarre product comes with a remote control used to transform the futon-like furniture into a large gaming chair that sits at a 60-degree angle for the upper body and a 30-degree angle for the legs.
While it seems like a joke at first glance, Bauhutte made the product with a completely serious purpose in mind. The company states that it was made to optimize space for gamers that are confined to smaller rooms or apartments, saving room by having a bed that converts to a comfortable gaming setup.
Rise-and-grind gamers or anyone interested in space-saving furniture can purchase this new transforming gaming chair/bed in Japan for 59,800 yen, which translates to $480 U.S. dollars. The mattress included in the pack is going for 83,398 yen or $670 U.S. dollars.
