self-curling futon   (+5, -2)  [vote for, against]

There are reflective strips that easily curl themselves around a person's wrist or ankle when snapped against it. (To straighten them out, one has to bend them a little, perpendicular to the direction of the curl.)

I want a giant version of this be built into a futon. I've been told that futons should be rolled and unrolled daily, to air them out - but actually doing so with a heavy western futon is just too much! It would also be nice to be able to put a guest bed away simply by pushing in the right place, or lifting it up a little.

Inspiration for this one. [jutta, Aug 17 2000]

<grin> Bellyflop on one and get turned into a burrito...That could suck...But would be a lot of fun to pull on people...

//rolled and unrolled daily, to air them out// I don't understand - wouldn't leaving them unrolled air them better? (Or are they normally stored rolled, hence requiring periodic unrolling to air them? That would make sense.)
