These Self-Parking Slippers Roll Back Into Place After You Kick Them Off

Description

A new 'smart' hotel in the Japanese city of Yokohama offers its guests a very unique and eye-catching new service. With the flip of a button, slippers worn by guests seem to magically return to their places, forming neat rows of footwear after sliding into their spots. The slippers are equipped with two tiny wheels, a motor and sensors which help guide he mini vehicle to its assigned place without too many bumps on the way. Using Nissan's ProPILOT Park technology, they can park themselves at the entrance of the traditional inn at the push of a button, ready for lucky guests to slip into upon arrival.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
