An innovative robotic furniture system to create more floor space at home

Watch the video and meet Bumblebee's high tech modular furniture system.

Who has ever dreamed of creating more space at home? Designed by former Apple and Tesla engineers for Bumblebee, this modular furniture system can store different modules such as a bed, desk, storage units on the ceiling, which can be lowered and raised as needed by voice or app control, thus disappearing into the ceiling and creating space for movement on the floor.

Bumblebee’s modular furniture system is created to change the function of a room using cubic space rather than relying solely on square footage.

Built on a fabricated ceiling mounted grid, the system can hold several tons and its interface is designed to catalog the contents of storage units so that particular items can be summoned through an app. The space can thus transform from living room to home office, by ways of a bedroom according to the needs of a person, an ever changing space throughout the day.

Users can instruct the system to lower the bed when they are ready to fall asleep or to raise the bed when they wake up. The system can also recognize different objects and remember where they have been placed. For example, look for a hat or an umbrella on a rainy day.
