Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute in Duisburg have unveiled their perception of a high-tech hotel room of the future. No sign of the ubiquitous bath towels for their beach loungers though! :o) TC. click here

Intresting id like to see the same room after a years useage & so what is still working or not working?

its a great idea im all in for the concept the only thing is these rooms wont be in your Holiday inn's there much more upmarket & your pay for the service which i would of thought would be around £180 per night min, this is ideal for people always on the go it offers something that nearly all hotels in the uk dont offer & thats the option to relax? most people have to try to relax by using a GYM or a POOL where as this has come in on a differant train!

the bed looks good but if you walk past it whilst the moving you could get a nasty bang from the moving edge unless the bedroom was big enough?

As with most hotels the rooms are dingy so if a hotel was to FULLY convert ALL there rooms to this style they would find themselves loosing a handfull of rooms or maybe more to adapt mass space needed to adapt the new features & a lot of companies WONT like that as its revenue there loosing..

The hotel room seemed to lack any soul or ambiance from what I saw on the BBC News 24 coverage.

I bet you'd still find a p*bic hair in the bath.

The last hotel room i was in had a shower you had to turn sidewase to get in, only program on tv was CNN,single bed with 18in space all round, had a lift only 3 people could use at one time. It was marvelous. Why? it was in Paris.

I had a similar experience in Paris, albeit in a tight double room, but the view of the Eiffel Tower from the window made up for it!
