CNN: Nissan's new Japan hotel takes automation to a new level
Tehran (KNA) - Japan already has the world's smartest toilets, but now there are smart shoes, furniture and accessories
You might remember Nissan's 2016 marketing maneuver, when the Japanese carmaker introduced a line of self-driving chairs that could autonomously glide together using cameras and sensors.This time, the auto innovators have taken aim at traditional hospitality and everyday objects.
Drawing from the autonomous parking technology of the Nissan Leaf car, which debuted in October, the ProPILOT Park Ryokan hotel comes kitted out with all kinds of intuitive amenities.
Sadly, the ryokan isn't a long-term hotel but rather part of a pop-up project. It will be open for one night only, on March 24, when the winners of a social media contest will have a chance to stay and experience the automatic amenities.
