This hotel room of the future is a giant Windows tablet
Trade shows often feature new products and services, but visitors to a trade event in Spain this month saw something truly unique, a futuristic hotel room where the walls are tablet-like, interactive touchscreens.
Developed by the Instituto Tecnológico Hotelero (ITH), in collaboration with international design studio SerranoBrothers, the futuristic hotel room, called the "ITH Room Xperience" was on display at the Fiturtech International Tourism Trade Fair in Spain.
A report by Australia’s News.com.au says tourists can upload their own photos to the walls of the hotel, choose a theme to get to sleep and browse the weather by using their fingers to tap that info.
If you were staying at this imaginary concept hotel for work, you’d be able to see your calendar appointments on the floor next to the bed; or pay your bill at checkout time by with a few taps on the wall.
An interactive mirror, walls and floor all use a Microsoft surface table interface.
The concept hotel room was developed with technology and products from Microsoft, Toshiba, Bang & Olufsen, PayTouch, Roca, and Guardian Glass.
SerranoBrothers says the design “integrates all its business dimensions and areas, and is also socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable, as well as hyperefficient and hyperconnected, so clients could be able to make the most of each and any technological resources available.”
