Visions Of The Future: Robotic Hotel Rooms On Wheels That Can Shuttle You Around As You Sleep Or Shower, Deliver Room Service Via Drone

November 26, 2018

These are Aprilli Design Studio's conceptual 'Autonomous Travel Suites.' They're electric-powered autonomous vehicles with the equivalent of a very small hotel room inside that can drive a person to their destination while they sleep, shower or work, and have room service delivered through the sunroof via drone. "So it's a tiny autonomous RV." Well when you put it that way...

The vehicle's designers note that travellers would simply specify the route they wanted to take via an app.

They could program stops along the way, or just journey straight through to their final destination.

So that travellers wouldn't miss out on the usual perks of staying in a hotel, Aprilli says it plans to install dozens of hotel facilities across road networks.

These stop-off points would house 'public amenities such as food and beverage, meeting room, spa, pool, and gym along with housekeeping, maintenance, and charging services for the travel suites'.

But does it have privacy windows for joining the *tape measuring height from road to top of bed* three and a half feet high club? Asking for a friend who's never had sex in a moving vehicle before. "Is that friend you, GW?" What? No -- my girlfriend and I were on the back of the bus in Speed and thought we were goners. "Oh wow." We did it twice.

Keep going for several more shots and a video.




Thanks to Thaylor H, who agrees that, while the future is clearly on its way, it isn't moving nearly fast enough to get here before the end of the world (March at the latest).

    Lame. I made a cooler lego version in like... 1995.

  • Rob Channing

    Because inertia doesnt exist in the future. apparently.

    Maybe tint those windows. For pounding off.

  • Bling Nye

    Depends on what you're into. Tint optional.

  • Pinguinus Scipio Africanus

    Or I can just get the plane ticket, cut off however many days in transit to specified destination and use the actual lice-infested hotel there.

  • Great - I'll be able to get motion sickness in bed!

  • Bling Nye

    You should try to sex harder.

  • Chaz Gomez

    I can do this with my RV right now... in fact everyone I know that owns a Travel Coach can do this now and even better... The Future!!!

  • The_Wretched

    This future is the RV drives you.

    In Russia, KGB drives you to gulag...

    25 years ago the idea of EZpass seemed ridiculous....

  • shashi

    Did you ever think you'd father a child, which will be harvested for creating an all natural food substitute, by ejaculate into a small plastic container during the throws of a VR induced and electronically stimulated full body orgasm?

    You will! And the company that will bring it to you...?

  • Closet Nerd

    Yogurt? Extra Protein?

    Step 1 - Listen to your kid as they are drawing their idea of a moving hotel room.
    Step 2 - Steal the kid's drawing and make a 3D model of it.
    Step 3 - Animate the whole darned thing and do not bother with physics, safety, privacy and feasibility.
    Step 4 - ???
    Step 5 - Profit!

    Step 4 - *Sell to suckers (one is born every minute)

    Cool, but I think way too many real life variables will get in the way of this becoming a reality.
    Like why we don't have a common flying car yet or ever.

  • spikedeclue

    Professional pilots typically make a lot more than professional drivers. Flying is a lot harder than driving. Generating enough thrust to fly even a single person and their stuff makes a lot of noise too. Real life variables getting in the way again.

    Let's replace all of the houses with rail roads and automated living pods like this one. People can be shipped to where they are needed cheaply and easily. Also, very low crime when you're forced into your pod daily. Excess population will be a snap to solve. Just have an off ramp into the ocean!
