900 year old European hotel tries to break the language barrier with Google Glass

When you book a stay at a 900 year old European luxury hotel, you know you’re going to have a memorable experience, but the Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine has now upped the ante by offering its guests one of the sought-after Google Glass. What could guests have to gain from this new addition to the hotel’s services? Visitors can use the futuristic specs to create videos and take pictures. They also help with translating menus and signage to minimize language barriers. Additionally, the 8 pairs of Google Glass at LeDomaine feature a pre-loaded video art tour that serves as a virtual tour guide to the various works of art across the hotel property.

First built as an abbey in 1146, the hotel has since revamped itself into a luxe getaway complete with acres of farmland, vineyards, a rich menu created by some of Spain’s most talented chefs and very soon a spa too.
