Your Meeting Matchmaker Fairy Godmother

It’s Time to Check-In to the Future

in: Technology Travel and Hospitality


As you walk up to the hotel your mobile device welcomes you, automatically checks you in, and shares with you your room number. Once you get to your room, simply wave your magical mobile phone over the lock and the door opens.

Your room is quite comfy, but you may need to make some adjustments. Keep your smartphone on hand, from there you can set the lighting, temperature, alarm, coffee or arrange for special requests.

Just as you are settling in, you realize you forgot your toothbrush. No problem, just order one via your phone. The droid will soon be at your door with toothbrush in hand, or well, it may not necessarily be a hand, more like a compartment.

Hungry? Thirsty? Just order up what you’re craving, the drone will be there any minute to deliver it to you.

If you’re up for a bit of adventure, why not go for skydive? No, you need not leave the hotel, just go down to the lobby for your virtual reality experience. More into biking? No problem, head to the gym and you can do a lap or two around Spain, via virtual reality of course.

After a good night’s sleep, you grab your cup of just brewed coffee (you set it up the day before, remember) and head to the restroom. While there, you look into the mirror, not only because you are exceptionally good looking, but also because your restroom is equipped with a smart mirror. Here, you can catch up on the news, learn the weather of the day and more!

How far off in the future is the reality? Not far at all! Check out this video!
