TECH­NOL­OGY is a key fo­cus of the re­design of one of the new­est ho­tels in Bris­bane.

Smart phones con­trol ev­ery­thing to the point where guests don’t even have to speak to staff but they are there if you want them.

A smart­phone app for iPhones and An­droids can be used to check into the ho­tel, turn the phone into a key card for the ho­tel room as well as set tem­per­a­ture and light­ing for the room re­motely.

Is this what we can look for­ward to for our per­sonal use in the fu­ture?

Are our lives go­ing to be con­trolled by an app?

What hap­pens if your bat­tery goes flat and the charger is inside – mean­ing the doors are locked. Who do you call?
