A new hotel in the UK has found a way to take all the interactive hotel tech stuff we've come to love (and expect), and use it for more kid-friendly purposes. So nevermind boring grown-up things like room service, e-concierges, and controlling the TV from your iPhone: the Wave Hotel in Bognor Regis is all about games, gadgetry, and fun.

Shaped like a cruise ship, and with plenty of ocean views, the 215-room Wave offers a Kindle library, a games room outfitted with iMacs, Wii consoles and PS3s, 3-D-augmented walls, iPod docking stations and individual TV screens at the foot of each bed.

Oh, and the WiFi is free.

After touring the W Hollywood yesterday (sorry, no photos allowed just yet) we learned that the hotel will be using Sanctuary Chargers in-room. Awesome! But wait, what are Sanctuary chargers you ask?

Sanctuary is a product from Bluelounge that enables you to charge all of your gadgets in one box, by offering a multitude of charging cords from cellphones to iPods, iPhones, PDAs and other gadgets that use a USB or mini-USB port to charge up. In fact, The Sanctuary is capable of charging over 1,500 different types of gadgets. Here's how MacWorld describes using the product:

Using The Sanctuary couldn’t get much simpler: remove the tray, plug in its AC adapter, find the correct cord for your device, thread it through one of the notches, replace the tray, and voilà. A green LED light on the power brick will tell you that your devices are receiving power—if it starts to blink or dim, it’s a sign that you may have too many things connected, and that The Sanctuary has had to reduce its power intake.
