Worlds most Unusual Hotels

October 25, 2009

Ariau Towers Hotel, Brazil

Not for the acrophobic, this hotel lets you sleep in the treetops of the Amazon Rainforest. “Tarzan’s house,” for example, is perched on stilts 80 feet above the ground. Situated on the bank of the Negro River, Ariau’s apartments, suites and tree houses are linked by a series of catwalks

Beckham Creek Cave Haven, Parthenon, Ark.

A “luxurious cave” may sound like the ultimate contradiction. This property, built into the Ozark Mountains, features natural rock walls and ceilings as well as Jacuzzi bathtubs and large windows for letting in light. Built as a Cold War bomb shelter by John Hay, founder of Celestial Seasonings tea, it’s now a base from which to hike, bike and explore local springs.

Casablanca Hotel, New York City

Ever wanted to live like Bogey? The 48-room Casablanca Hotel in Times Square features a Moroccan décor complemented by Rick’s Café, named for the restaurant in the classic 1942 film featuring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

Hydropalace, Qingdao, China

Scheduled to open in 2009, the Hydropalace in Qingdao, China, will be anchored in the Yellow Sea in water that is 16 to 20 meters deep at low tide. Guests will arrive at the hotel by yacht, which will also stop at a planned land-based hydrotower, scheduled to open for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beiging

Ice Hotel, Quebec, Canada

The Ice Hotel is created anew each year out of 15,000 pounds of snow and 500 pounds of ice. The 34-room hotel features an ice chapel, two art galleries and a host of outdoor activities. The temperature inside the hotel ranges from 23 to 28 degrees Fahrenheit, and the beds are carved from ice. You don’t sleep directly on the ice, though–there’ s a wooden plank between the ice and a comfy mattress, plus you’re insulated with a special sleeping bag that can withstand the harshest climes (-40 degrees Fahrenheit). Happily, the bathrooms are not frigid–the heated facilities are in the adjacent hotel.

Library Hotel, New York City

Appropriately located near the New York Public Library, the hotel has 60 rooms on 10 floors. Each floor is designed after one of the 10 categories of the Dewey Decimal System, such as Math and Science and Religion, and each room houses part of the hotel’s collection of 6,000 books.

Propeller Island City Lodge, Berlin, Germany

Would you rather sleep in a coffin or in a bed atop a castle? These are just a couple of options available when visiting the Propeller Island City Lodge, where each of the 31 rooms embrace a different theme. From the orange room to the symbol room–tiled entirely with wooden blocks painted with 300 different symbols–this gallery-esque spot gets those creative juices pumping.

10 Weirdest Phones

October 25, 2009

Phones, we all use them. Some of us prefer just a cell phone, others prefer a land line, and, yet, some of us have both. No matter what kind of phone you choose there is a phone for everyone. Sometimes, the phones can be weird or a weird concept that could potentially turn out to be the best thing going.

Nokia 888

The Nokia 888 is a concept phone that has been deemed the bendable phone. You can take this phone and bend it anyway you need it to. It will fit around your wrist, like a bracelet, or you can shape it to form a clip on your clothes. It works through touch and voice recognition.

Hyundai MP-280

The Hyundai MP-280 is known as the perfume phone. This phone as all the functionality of a regular cell phone with the added bonus of being able to keep you scented with your favorite perfume. When you open phone it will let out a light spritz of your favorite perfume. You can even refill the cartridge with a syringe when you have run out.

Telson TWC 1150

The Telson TWC 1150 is a phone, watch and camera all in one little neat package. It has a digital camera that attaches to the side, a phone with voice recognition and it acts as a watch. It is light weight, weighing only 98 grams and you are sure to never loose it, with it being around your wrist all day. It is very much like a spy or James Bond type of device.

Pantech

Pantech now makes a mosquito repellent phone. It has all the features of a regular cell phone, but it makes “ultrasonic” noises to repel mosquitoes. The noises are very audible to anyone around and can be quite annoying, but supposedly it works at repelling the mosquitoes, leaving your slumber a bite free one.

Matchbox Cell Phone

The matchbox cell phone is just that. It is about as big as a matchbox and the keypad slides in and out of the LCD screen like an actual matchbox would function. At the moment it is only a concept phone, but with its light weight design and functionality it is only a matter of time before it comes to fruition.

Thunder Super Radio Hi Fi

Right now this is just a concept phone, but it is expected to get made. With the invention of cell phones that have been doubling as MP3 players, the sound quality of the phones has been lack luster. With this phone, the quality should be much better, hence the larger speaker in the back of the phone.

Cigarette Phone

This Chinese cell phone will not only make phone calls, but it will also hold cigarettes. This concept phone was made to appeal to the millions of smokers that inhabit the borders of China. Equipped with a camera and a LCD screen, you can load up a half a pack of cigarettes in the back. It looks like a pack of cigarettes and comes with a pack and lighter when purchased.

Hamburger Phone

This phone is a land line phone that can fool anyone into thinking that it is just a hamburger. It was seen in the popular movie Juno and has all the normal function of a regular phone. To use it, you just lift up the top bun and dial. You have to hold the bun and patty portions to your ears and mouth in order to talk.

Sandwich Phone

This phone is made to look like sandwich. You can pretend that it is your favorite kind of sandwich and just set it down to fool your friends. That is until it rings and you have to answer it. To use it, you can pull apart the bread in order to unveil the receiver. The other piece of the bread will act as the keypad and you can use it and talk on it like it is a regular phone.

French Fry Phone

That is right! Not only can you get a hamburger phone, but you can get a companion phone in the French fry phone. This phone is meant to be a land line phone and it can be closed up to look like just a box of French fries. The back end of the phone is the portion you use to talk and dial on, after flipping open the back compartment where the keypad and receiver are hid.
