The future of travel is (almost) here. There is now a self-driving hotel room. The latest design from Steve Lee of Aprilli Design Studio, this hybrid concept combines his experience in hotel architecture and design with his love for futuristic tech, as reported by CNN.

Lee shared, “as an architect, I see self-driving vehicles as more being more like a mobile room.” The vehicle is designed to carry travelers on drives between six and 10 hours. It is all set with many elements you might see in a hotel room: a sleeping space, work space, small kitchen, toilet, a sitting shower, and even a “entertainment zone” to watch movies and play games.

The panoramic smart glass windows will even dim at the touch of a button. And, these travel suites come in a range of sizes, from solo travelers, couples or families. They will be operated by a chain of “Autonomous Hotels” that will offer on-the-road services like maintenance, waste removal and water provision.

For those looking for a little break, travelers can also choose to dock their suite into a “parent suite” offering overnight stays and shared amenities, from swimming pools to restaurants, gyms and meeting rooms.

Don’t be on the lookout for these just yet, though. It’s predicted that in the US, carmakers will be able to produce fully self-driving vehicles by 2021, however the infrastructure necessary for the public road system may not be in place for another decade. So, it looks like it’s going to be a while before we can actually take a ride in one of these. Read more on CNN here.
