Studio apartment with descending bedroom

The tech that manages your bed, drawers, and closet

Thanks to this tech, this room is much more livable and affordable

Believe it or not, they’re able to install this system in less than an hour!

Can you imagine if your bed just hid into the ceiling like that?

Bumblebee Spaces Robotic Ceiling Systems

This furniture technology is called a robotic ceiling system and it’s created by Bumblebee Spaces, Sankarshan Murthy’s startup company. Before this, he worked on the Tesla Model Y and the Apple Watch. Pretty interesting guy, right?

So when Sankarshan needed more space for his families’ small home in Silicon Valley, he naturally chose to create high tech transforming furniture. He jokes that it’s kind of like having Marie Kondo in your ceiling. Lol!

VIDEO: Transformer furniture hidden on ceiling deploys on command

We visited the company’s first beta prototype in San Francisco’s South Park neighborhood. Here they installed a ceiling system to allow a one-bedroom home inside a coliving space to morph between bedroom, living room and closet with a click or a command.3

    Quite frankly that scares me witless. What happens if the strap like mechanism snaps? Oh yeah, instant flat top to the head.

      I know, right! It is kind of scary when you think of it. But yeah, it does have safety mechanisms in place.

    I’m sure there must be a safety feature for failed mechanism. There is also a weight limit I would think.
    It is like the elavator bed. That Anna White did in her Tiny House. If your tiny and like tiny spaces. Your good to go. A good warranty for these would be recommended.

      It has sensors for weight so nobody gets stuck up there (including pets). So if the weight is off, it just won’t go up, according to the video.

    I have been always a fan of lift up to the ceiling beds in small spaces. However, this one, although nice seems to me a bit complicated and expensive for a THOW. Being a sailor I stuck to KISS principle ‘Keep it Simple Safe’ . Beside that I have my doubts about failure when the house is moving more often.
    There are more simple although less comfortable solutions like Ana Whites lift up bed using a garage door motor for lifting and lowering and keep it in place by bolts.

    This looks pretty neat, great space saver absolutely, although the small bit on the side is- dresser bin? I would most likely never feel completely comfortable with something like that- old fashioned thinking perhaps!:). I do like the idea of murphy beds and think they offer a good deal of space saving and more control in my environment.

    Fantastic! Minimalist efficient living has arrived 🙂

    It certainly gets the bed off the floor. Personally I would much prefer to have a murphy type bed where the
    bed goes up and there is either a couch underneath or a great desk, both saving space. thanks!

    Then there is the cost of a backup generator with inverter for the inevitable power outage.
    No power, no bed ? or worse no power when bed is half extended. Yay hammock time.

      Good call! LOL.

      That’s a serious concern. It would be nice if there was some sort of manual way to do it. But I would bet that these guys already thought of it and set up some kind of battery backup for it.

    I admit that it is clever but wouldn’t a Murphy Bed work just as well? They have them that are attached to a sofa that disappears when the bed is folded down. I guess the problem I see is you would be sleeping on your couch if the power went out or the mechanism wasn’t working properly. What if it got stuck halfway down? Yes, clever but I’m not completely convinced that it is a viable solution.
