Technology just might be the answer for taking your Murphy bed to the next level. A group of MIT grads led by Hasier Larrea have created a mix of home automation apps and robotics that can change the dimension’s of a small apartment’s individual areas, such as a bathroom or living room, on command, according to the Boston Business Journal. A great YouTube video shows how the furniture in a 400-square foot apartment adjusts to different times of day and living scenarios, such as a bed sliding out of a drawer when it’s time to sleep, and converting into a desk when it’s time to get up and work. It even shows how a closet-sized bathroom could expand into more space when someone uses it. Now that’s smarter living through technology. Check out the article and video here.
