I travel a lot and I’ve seen (and used) my fair share of Do Not Disturb signs. Most hang from the doorknob, and some are inserted into the card key slot.
But who hasn’t experienced their shortcomings? Either they fall to the floor every time you open the door, or you aren’t given one at all, or someone across the hall steals yours for their door. It’s quite a customer experience problem.
At the Seaport Hotel in Boston, they’re working hard to solve this timeless inconvenience. Their solution is rather ingenious.
Press this button inside your room…
…and a light is illuminated outside your door
Now this is the same hotel whose unfoggable mirror I wrote about last year. It’s clear that they care about creating pleasurable experiences, and are using technology to bring them to life.
But how much electricity must this expend for the whole hotel? And can the lights burn out?
Has anyone ever seen this before? What more can you tell me about it?
