Windows 8 used as part of future hotel room concept

 

What if you discovered that the next time you checked into a hotel room, you found that it had massive touch screens all over the place? While such a scenario is not likely to happen in the near future, it's a design concept that has been created, and it's one that uses the "Modern" user interface of Windows 8 as part of its creation.

The Next at Microsoft blog has posted up word on the concept, called the ITH Room Xperience, that was generated by the Serrano Brothers design team in Spain. As you can see in the video above, the room has a bed in the center that's surrounded by massive transparent touch screens.

The screens are made to display pictures, video and more and can even use Windows 8 as its UI. There's even a big Windows 8 Surface-like tablet that's placed on a table to the side of the bed that could be used to control aspects of the hotel room.

There are a lot of things going on in this concept (the closet that's made to open up in the wall like a big sea pod is cool) but we are not sure if we would feel comfortable in staying in such a hotel room surrounded by ever changing screens.
