The "Internet of Things" has yet to make any house hold "hi-tech," but hotels worldwide are adopting other technologies to make travelers' stays something that came out of "Back to the Future" or even "Futurama." From robot butlers, minimalist pods with mood lighting and WiFi, and using iPhones as keys, these are the new wave of hotels from the future!

In Poland's Poznan city is a hotel that possibly came straight out of "Blade Runner" with its quirky yet sophisticated artwork created from photographs of guests. Who makes the edits, no one knows, but according to The Telegraph, Blow Up Hall 5050 provides new temporary iPhones that guide travelers to their correct rooms and also unlocks doors like keycards.

Spain has the first hotel in Europe that offers a free Google Glass to its guests. The purpose of Abadia Retuerta LeDomaine, Spain is to create all kinds of memories through taking photos and videos with the device. While it does not offer any additional "hi-tech" feeling, the ability to take photos through eye rolls or even navigate the internet with your eyelids is a purely amazing feeling.

Being near Silicon Valley in California, Aloft Cupertino must keep up with the area's culture -- and it does with flying colors. Aloft Cupertino has "Botlr," an armless robot that makes deliveries and acts as a concierge delivering small snacks and perform errands for you.

While stays are limited to 50 people only, the minimalist pods of CityHub, Amsterdam will remind you of a great many science fiction movies or even novels. Even if sized exactly like a single bed, CityHub's pods can fit double beds. The rooms come with a WiFi and audio streaming service and mood lighting controlled through a smartphone app.

According to Business Insider, the Weird Hotel in Sasebo, Japan is partially run by robots including an English-speaking dinosaur robot and a Japanese- speaking humanoid robot at the front desk responsible for checking in guests. Floor robots carry travelers' luggage to their rooms. Only housekeeping is done by humans.
