Athletes staying at the Olympic Village in the 2022 Winter Games will have the use of rather cool remote controlled beds.

Some athletes that have already arrived in Beijing have started sharing videos of the new gadgets.

On Thursday, American luge athlete and two-time Olympian, Summer Britcher, shared a TikTok video that has amassed more than 257,000 views and 43,000 comments showing off the bed.

The video came in response to a fan who asked if athletes at the Winter Olympics were given cardboard beds similar to last summer.

“I am so excited you asked this question because I have something incredible to share,” Britcher said.

The video then cuts to Britcher showing off the remote-controlled bed that athletes were given during their stay. The remote appeared to have as many as eight settings.

A fellow athlete in Britcher’s room examined the remote and then asked, “What’s Zero-G mode?”

Britcher later appeared in the video while lying on her bed.

“I’m in Zero-G mode now, and it’s phenomenal,” she said.
