As the sun rises over Las Vegas, so too do the hot air balloons. This morning an abundance of balloons! You can’t help but smile when your eyes spot them. They slowly rise into the air ... as the corners of your mouth rise in unison with them and that internal childhood voice cries out with delight in your mind, "BALLOONS!" .
When guests order an item to their room at one Las Vegas resort, a robot is likely to show up at their door.
Vdara added a pair of autonomous robots — named Fetch and Jett — to work alongside their human counterparts to carry out the delivery of snacks, sundries, spa products, and food and beverage items. “Fetch and Jett are a fun and convenient addition to our team at Vdara,” said Mary Giuliano, Vdara general manager. “Guests enjoy the novelty of having their morning coffee and other items delivered by a robot, which frees up time for the rest of our staff to focus their energy on requests that require a higher level of service.” After receiving an order, a staff member will load the desired product into the robot’s transport compartment and input their room number. The robot will then navigate its way to the guest’s room to deliver the product. Once the robot arrives at the room, it will call their room phone to alert them their delivery arrived.
After removing their items, Fetch and Jett will ask the guest for feedback on their service before traveling back to their docking stations. The entire delivery process usually takes less than five minutes to complete, Vdara said in a statement.
The fully autonomous indoor delivery robots use advanced technology to navigate around people and objects as they complete their task. They’re able to handle multiple requests and wirelessly communicate with the hotel’s systems, including operating the elevators autonomously. #vdara#lasvegas#lasvegassun#robot#customerservice#fetch#jett
Hidden away in the attic of a Louis Vuitton was this amazing art installation. It was full color immersion. You could walk inside of it and the colors are slightly changing at all times. Such a weird, disorienting, and calming feeling! The artist made it to mimic how it looks when you are flying over water with no landmarks and the sky and the water blend. If you go to Las Vegas I would definitely recommend seeing this! It only took about 15 minutes but you do need an appointment at least a month ahead of time.
Again not my photos as no electronics are allowed inside.

For comparison, streets and freeways take up less space—the 405, Sunset Boulevard, and all of Los Angeles’s other famous roadways add up to about 140 square miles of Los Angeles County’s land. #NixTix
