Beware the hotel death ray

In an era where environmental sustainability is a big thing, a lot of work has been done to minimise the environmental footprint of large buildings. The Vdara Hotel and Spa is one such building, but it’s having an unexpected impact. The reflection of sunlight in one section of the pool area is a little like an ant being introduced to a magnifying glass on a sunny day.

Disposable plastic cups have been seen to melt and a guest claims his hair was set on fire. The hotel is working on a solution, but in the meantime I imagine there’s going to be no shortage of marshmallows in the pool area.
