Well, we have robots serving our food, so why not a hologram checking you in at your next hotel stay? As we move into a more virtual world, Holoconnects, a Dutch startup, partnered with Aiden by Best Western Hotels to bring this innovative check-in experience to its guests.

"After walking through the front door and past a motion detector, the guest is greeted with a pre-recorded hologram video that’s projected into a Holobox, the hologram box that is over 6-feet tall and 3-feet wide and contains a touchscreen that’s 86-inches tall," wrote Justin Dawes

While it may be a little jarring at first if unexpected, it sure looks like its more fun that checking in at a kiosk touchscreen. Here, you can see for yourself in this video from at Vimeo from Justin Dawes
