PostHeaderIcon Are You Prepared For a World With Self-Moving Slippers?

In case there aren’t enough things in this world that are becoming autonomous these days, Nissan is taking it a step further by giving everyday items the ability to move by themselves. We’re not talking about cars; we’re talking about things like tables, floor cushions, remote controls, and household slippers.

The unusual amenities can be found in the ProPILOT Park Ryokan, a Japanese inn located in Hakone, Japan that Nissan is using to showcase its ProPilot Park technology.Instead of the usual dog and pony show of watching a Nissan Leaf EV demonstrate the new self-parking technology, Nissan instead turned its attention to household items in order to showcase what the tech is capable of. The results are incredible, if not a little freaky. Have you ever seen a floor pillow move by itself in a non-supernatural way? How about a pair of slippers that arranges itself neatly with others of its kind? It’s going to take some getting used to.

Nissan doesn’t really say how the technology works on these items, but the video above cuts to a scene where a group of smart people are working on developing the tech, complete with renderings and mockups of the actual slippers. There’s nothing ghoulish at work here; it’s all about Nissan’s new ProPilot Park technology, and the potential applications it can have beyond its ability to park a Nissan by itself.

Maybe Nissan’t on to something here. In my case, I wouldn’t mind living in a world where my dog isn’t the only one that comes greeting me when I enter my house. I’d like to see a future where slippers could do that too. Live in Nissan’s world, or in this case, the ProPilot Park Ryokan, and that future is there, waiting to welcome us with open arms and a comfortable pair of autonomous slippers.

And in case you’re wondering about the authenticity of the hotel, Nissan’s actually offering a free night at the ProPILOT Park Ryokan for a lucky pair of travelers. If you’re interested in joining, all you need to do is post on Twitter using the hashtags #PPPRyokan and #wanttostay from January 25 to February 10, 2018. In the event you do get picked to spend a night in the inn, be sure to let us know all about that experience.
