This Gamer Bed Was Definitely Not Designed For A Good Night's Sleep

Japanese retailer Bauhutte has recently revealed its gaming mattress for players who simply must have everything* (*RGB night light not included.)

Bauhutte's philosophy is to deliver gamers the "hideout" they always sought after as ankle-biters, tapping into the "imaginative" aspects of the medium. With set ups ranging from a racer's cockpit to a gaming castle and even a box which turns your desk into a little tent, there's a lot on offer.

Functionality is also a tenet of Bauhutte's designs, so there's a gaming bed that allows the player to recline or curl up with their PC or consoles. There's already a lot of research into why this isn't a good idea if you're after a decent night's sleep as it keeps your mind occupied when your body is ready for rest.

But, if you're here for a good time, not a long time, then you'll love the gaming mattress. Maybe. It isn't a very exciting product at first blush.

Is it a dream after one too many cheese and pineapple sticks? No, it's Jeff Goldblum rating dinosaurs' strengths and whether they could take on gaming heroes like Sonic, Kratos, and more for Jurassic World Evolution 2. Check it out here!

Fortunately, the description gets into the details on why this is a must for people who stay up playing Rocket League til their eyes turn into giant footballs. It's a moderately firm foam mattress which offers support for the gamer's head, neck, spine, waist and legs thanks to varying slits in the foam.

That helps it roll up for storage and the cover is removable for washing. Bauhutte is producing the mattress in three different sizes - single, semi-double and double. These will set you back somewhere between 28,500 yen and 43,500 yen (or £190 to £290). To compare, an IKEA foam mattress is £85 with a £15 delivery charge.

I'm not overly convinced about the necessity of this mattress for a gamer. Neither are a lot of Japanese consumers, who criticised the product for leaping on a trend (cheers, Kotaku). "This has nothing to do with gaming," said one detractor. "For this to be a gaming product, it really needs to be illuminated," added another.
