When I go to bed every night, I usually stow my phone and laptop, take off my glasses and pants, and put on my night pants (yes, I suffer from night pants).

The next morning, I do the opposite. What's needed is a revolving clothesline suspended over my bed, where I can put my laptop in the first bucket, pants in the pants bucket and so on, without ever getting out of bed.

Gone are the days and the people who claim that this is WKTE.

       //Gone are the days and the people who claim that this is WKTE// Some of us are old* enough to remember Wallace and Gromit's inventions, Pee Wee Herman's Breakfast Maker (probably stolen from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Benny Hill), Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times Eating Machine AND, of course, Rube Goldberg himself.   

       However [+] for the pandemic-lockdown friendly application revolving (ha) around working from home, getting in/out of bed, as a LifeLine.

       On the one hand, Wallace's "drop out of bed through the floor" is brilliant, but that means, when worn out at the end of the day, you need to climb back up the stairs. It needs bedroom & kitchen (office, whatever) to swap places (vertically) during the day, & again at night, so you always go "down" to the required space.
I have seen an old (very very old, black & white) comedy, with a bunch of rope-pulls above the bed to do useful stuff (make breakfast, etc), including one rope to lift all the other ropes up out of the way.
The idea itself is very clever.
