THE NEXT TIME
you have a “Eureka!” moment in the shower, you may be able to jot it down there and then.
Marriott is currently testing a touchscreen shower door at the Irvine Marriott in California, which enables users to trace their ideas in the build-up of condensation and digitally record their notes by sending them to their email address for future use.
The hotel group has also been developing a new “smart room” that uses IoT (Internet of Things) technology to enable guests to speak to a virtual assistant to set alarms, play yoga routines in their mirror, or start their shower at the desired temperature.
Marriott isn’t alone in the quest for future tech – Hilton has also unveiled its new “Connected Room” concept that enables users to control their in-room services through their own mobile devices.
