1. Treehotel, Harads, Sweden
Treehouse is the paradise for kids. Stay in the tree hotel near the small village of Harads in the north of Sweden is never short of amazing. The remote tree hotel dwelling brings you back to your childhood fantasy of the "Swiss Family Robinson" fairy tale. The shelter of the hotel is made of the aluminum structure with the mirrored glass to reflect the surrounding and the sky. The children would get excited about the tangle of green limbs swaddled the tree house like a living hammock. By and large, you would feel like the life has slowed down and allowed you to sit back relighting the spirit of the child within. In fact, it is an adult escapist fantasy embrace with the emotions for adventure seeking, nostalgia, and proximity to the wild of nature.
2. Robot hotel, Nagasaki, Japan
Henn-na Hotel in Nagasaki is the world's first hotel operated with staffed entirely by robots. It advocates the “ultimate of efficiency” assortment of innovation in a weird sense. The guests check in with the help of a vicious-looking dinosaur robot. If you don’t like talking with the scary dinosaur, that robot lady with blinking lashes probably can serve you better.
What is scarier than the dinosaur robot is that when our children grow up, they would have a hard time to compete with the much more sophisticated machines. The robots work harder than us, definitely can work longer hours than us, and accept lower pay than us. The jobs of the future will be what robots can’t do such as something related to creativity, imagination, leadership, analysis, telling the joke, writing a book, doing science...
3. Floating Hotel, Japan
Japanese theme park Huis Ten Bosch will launch the weird floating hotel pods by the end of 2017. They are the capsule hotel room floating across the sea overnight. The concept is interesting. It is awesome to gaze up at the stars through its glass ceiling at night. But I somewhat dislike the feeling of drifting and floating. We like sailing more than drifting, aren't we? We are the captain of the parenting ship steering to the wonderland of happiness for our children. We don't want to be like Alice:
Alice: Would you tell me which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don’t much care where.
The Cheshire cat: then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
(Quote from Alice in Wonderland)
