Hotel Chain's Robots Turn Guests' Sleeping Patterns Into Art
October 08, 2012
Too many jokes, not enough time.
A hotel chain called ibis is outfitting guests in a handful of European hotels with specially outfitted beds that monitor body movements as you sleep, and enable a remotely stationed robot to turn your movement into "works of art' - acrylic paintings, to be exact.
