Forget about that retracting bed. If I lived in a small apartment I'd happily replace all my furniture—bed, couches, dining table—with this giant padded nest. If it's good enough for a giant yellow bird, it's good enough for me.
If you live in an earthquake-zone, the idea of hanging an entire retractable bed from your ceiling probably seems ludicrous. But if you're crammed into a tiny flat, it might instead seem like pure genius.
Archaeologists have found the world's oldest bed in South Africa and it's 50,000 years older than any bedding ever found. The 77,000-year-old bedding, which was made with medicinal plants, shows how creative our ancestors could be.
