The Check Out Suite

The Hotel Bellora in Gothenberg, Sweden has introduced what it calls the 'check out suite'. The price of staying in this room is proportional to how much time you spend online while there. The cost rises the more you use the Internet. Also, a lamp in the room changes color from white to red as your Internet usage increases. If the lamp changes fully to red, you've got to pay full price for the room.

The goal is to encourage occupants of the room to have more real-world interactions with people. But if so, why limit it to Internet usage? What about docking them for time spent watching TV as well?

Being the sort of person I am, by the end of my stay I would be presented with a bill for $0.00. When I travel I do not waste time on the net. Email, Weird Universe entries, etc. can wait until I am home again. Cell phone is only because my wife would poop if she could not reach me to tell me about the latest cute cat episode in our home.

No problem; just bring a hooker into the room with you. That should count as a real-world interaction. Gothenberg has good ones. Uh, that's what a friend told me; I wouldn't know.
