Rotisserie bed   (+1)  [vote for, against]

It's really hot at night here, so here's a bed which gently turns you all night, keeping you cool. I've been meaning to do a drawing of this for days but am unlikely to have time to do it this week so am posting it without the drawing.

The bed is basically two large rollers with a continuous sheet wrapped around them. You lie in the dip between the two rollers and as the rollers slowly turn through the night you roll in the opposite direction as you continuously roll back down into the dip.

For additional coolness there could be a upwards-blowing fan beneath the sheet.

Another bed centering idea. [phoenix, Oct 05 2004]

I swear there was a similar idea here a while back. It was a cylindrical bed that rotated as you slept in it, thus rolling you over... can't find it though.

or get a hammock. i think this idea would be better for bedridden patients to prevent pressure ulcers, but have the rollers reverse directions so you're not flopping over on your face but merely rotating side to side. (+)

This just seems all bad, landing on your face, keeping you awake, contorting limbs and suffocating malfunctions... a silent, comfortable, predictable bed is a horrible thing to waste.

and as you slowly fall off into the floor, waking you up every 5 minutes
