Plagued with fears of being buried alive? This 60-room sandcastle hotel (which, yes, is made entirely of sand) may not be for you. Created for the sand sculpture festival in the Netherlands, the Zand Hotel is basically a huge sandcastle where you can actually sleep in a room made of sand! The hotel took four weeks to build and rooms cost about $170/night-- pretty affordable considering the fact that you're sleeping in the castle of your childhood beach dreams. Creators have plans to expand the the sand hotel business and create even more castles in UK and Germany.

The Henn-na Hotel in Japan's Nagasaki prefecture figured out the perfect way to creep guests out the minute they arrive: employ multilingual gynoid robots as receptionists. These "actroids" can respond to body language and make eye contact, so guests have to choice but to stare into the bots' cold, dead eyes as they check in.
The rest of the staff is robotic as well, though they don't look like terrifying almost-humans that might kill you like the lady in Ex-Machina. Robots at the hotel are also capable of carrying your luggage, making your coffee, cleaning your room, and delivering your laundry. If that's not enough technology for you, the rooms also open by facial recognition software and can detect your body temperature to regulate the air temp.Source: Engadget
