The German Future Hotel Room

The BBC’s Steve Rosenberg tours a highly unconventional and technologically advanced hotel room created by a German institute.  This “hotel room of the future” is complete with a rocking bed, color changing ceiling, and scented steams to your desire. 

The small features are nice, but to me the aesthetics are that of a space station medical exam room circa 2040.  The entire place appears frigid – and upon checkin I wouldn’t be surprised to be assigned a sterile white sheet to wrap around me for the duration of my stay..

Is our future completely void of coziness and warmth?  Minimalism is in.  Cocoons are not. 

I can’t embed the video but check it out here.  Photo from RetroRichmond.com  – which is worth a nostalgic look after seeing that video…
