Vegas Hotel 'Death Ray' Burns Tourists

submitted on September 29, 2010 by siggy38 in "Member's Lounge"

Las Vegas has a new hot spot. Cool
Guests at the new Vdara Hotel have complained that the glass skyscraper can magnify and reflect the sun's rays onto an area of the pool at temperatures hot enough to singe hair or melt plastic drink cups.
The building's concave design creates a sort of magnifying-glass effect. The hotel's designers reportedly anticipated that ill-situated humans might experience some discomfort courtesy of the building's blinding glare, so they placed a film over the glass panes of its many windows. Obviously that didn't quite do the trick. So for now the hotel is placing larger umbrellas in the pool area while designers try to come up with another remedy.

    Can you imagine being the unsuspecting visitor in the wrong place?
