Wouldn’t you know that Halloween is now firmly in the rearview mirror. And that can only mean one thing!

Well, that means that the holidays are finally upon us!

Watch: Is This Robotic Hotel Room on Wheels the Future of Travel?

It’s a personal taxi and luxury hotel room in one — and it might just be the future of travel.

Toronto-based design firm Aprilli Design Studio designed the “Autonomous Travel Suite,” a hotel suite housed within a self-driving vehicle, which lets travelers visit multiple destinations anytime, day or night.

Conceptual renderings show a battery-powered, mobile hotel room on wheels, equipped with sleeping, working, and washroom facilities. It features a double bed, desk area and workspace, shower, panoramic windows, and a retractable roof where room service can be dropped off via drones.

The travel suite will allow “guests to use their travel time more efficiently and productively,” according to Aprilli.

There will also be an indoor temperature control system, which responds to climates and environments automatically.

Aprilli says the Autonomous Travel Suite communicates through a central platform for “intelligent hospitality service” called Autonomous Interface that controls the various operations and services between the travel suites and hotel facilities using advanced technology.

Travelers would simply specify the destinations they want to visit via an online app, and the interface will analyze the best routes to take. Any necessary services can also be requested through the app.

And since many travelers would still prefer the perks of stationary hotels, Aprilli says it will install hotel facilities across road networks. The stationary “parent units,” which the Autonomous Travel Suites can dock into, will provide public amenities, such as a meeting room, spa, pol, and gym, along with housekeeping and charging services for the mobile suites.

“As a new way of traveling, the Autonomous Travel Suite will become a strong competitive form of inter-city travel option, impacting the conventional transportation and hospitality industry,” the design firm says on their website. “Along with future technologies including Artificial Intelligence, robotics, drones, among others, the Autonomous Travel Suite will become your companion, changing your journey into a destination.”

Aprilli’s concept for the Autonomous Travel Suite was awarded the top prize at this year’s Radical Innovation Award, which recognizes innovative ideas relating to hospitality.

This Embraer ‘Shark’ Plane Has No Dreaded Middle Seats

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a great white shark.

Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer is turning heads with its new E190-E2 plane, painted up in a special great white shark livery.

The jet, nicknamed the “Shark Profit Hunter” has been touring the world, making appearances at various airshows, including at Airshow China 2018, held earlier this month in Zhuhai in Guangdong Province. It’s the show plane for Boeing and Embraer’s E2 family of regional jets, which encompasses the E175-E2, E190-E2, and E195-E2.

The E190-E2 boasts a 2-2 seating configuration, getting rid of the dreaded middle seats. It also features re-designed, larger windows to make the cabin brighter, overhead bins that are 40 percent larger and able to fit standard carry-on luggage wheels-first, and no under-seat support rails to impede legroom.

“Preserving passenger personal space is the goal,” Rodrigo Silva e Souza, vice-president of marketing for Embraer Commercial Aviation, told CNN Travel.

The aircraft can carry up to 150 passengers, and is the world’s “quietest, cleanest and most efficient new generation single-aisle aircraft in the segment,” according to an Embraer press release. The jet is said to burn 17 per cent less fuel than its predecessor, the E190. It’s main rival is the new Airbus A220 plane.

The E190-E2 is currently in commercial operation with Norway’s Widerøe, since April of this year, and Embraer forecasts 2,820 commercial aircraft up to 150 seats to be delivered over the next 20 years to European operators.

Embraer has highlighted Alaska Airlines, Spirit Airlines and United Airlines as US carriers that would most benefit from operating E2 jets, FlightGlobal reported. However, the first E175-E2 orders are not scheduled for delivery until 2021

In the meantime, look out for a shark on the runway.
