Checking In at the Hotel of Tomorrow

Abstract:
Kinetic Corridor It isn't just the lobby and rooms that cater to your needs. When the corridor detects human CO2 emissions, LCD panels on the ceiling become a blanket of stars, and illuminated signs point guests to their rooms, with large numbers for tired eyes. The carpet's nanofibers fight static and stains.

Bath and Beyond The nanotech revolution means spotless antibacterial bathroom tiles, not to mention intelligent bathtubs that mold to the shape of your body. It's gentler on the environment too. Water from the sink and shower is filtered into the toilet reservoir, rather than going down the drain. And all toiletry bottles are biodegradable.

A More Comfortable Comforter The sheets are made of special nanofabric that keeps itself clean and can be adjusted for firmness and heat. Biosensors measure your body temperature and instruct the fabric to adjust accordingly.
