Bumblebee Spaces is creating robotic apartments that double your room's usable space by storing furniture and belongings on the ceiling. Your possessions descend with a voice command or the push of a button, and storage units are equipped with artificial intelligence and tiny cameras that list your items in a searchable inventory.

The company is hoping to manufacture hundreds of these units by the end of 2019. The current price for developers is $6,000 to $10,000 for a full bedroom set. Bumblebee will announce mass-market pricing next year.
