Oh, how I miss the hotel industry!

Back in the day, I used to sell my soul to the hospitality industry, one minimum-wage paycheck at a time, and, as a result, tune into all kinds of crazy travel and hotel trends. Apparently, one of the latest trends is something stolen from the Japanese, capsule hotels. Now, these used to be the province of drunken salarymen who missed the last train home, but they’re being exported everywhere.

The latest trend in these capsule hotels are to “Gibsonise” them, and throw in all kinds of high-tech goodies to appeal to the modern consumer. Phillips is the latest company to do this, according to this Gizmodo article, and using their own line of electronics.
Crazy stuff.
