You can get a free room at Hotel Bellora, Sweden by refusing to use your phones. The Check Out Suite in Hotel Bellora wants the users to relax. The hotel wants to encourage quality time spent with loved ones rather than stare at the phone screen. The number of social media users worldwide in 2018 was 3.196 as per Hotel Designs.
The Check Out Suite in Hotel Bellora a Skärmfri (Screen-free) smart lamp, which measures how much you pay for the room based on how much time you spend on social media.
The Skärmfri lamp is taken even further and converted screen time into a currency that rewards a healthy digital life as per Lisa Höglund, Head of Communications at Länsförsäkringar, a Swedish insurance company which is working in collaboration with Hotel Bellora, to Hotel Designs.
Guest connect their phones to the lamp using the room’s WiFi, and from there, the lamp glows white as it measures up to 30 minutes of the recommended time people should be on their phones for recreation, as per the studies cited by Hotel Designs.
After that, the lamp starts to glow red, which means guests will have to pay the full price for the room. On the bright side, if you don’t use your phone at all, the room is totally free.
