Calling for room service is kind of annoying, though it’s one of the most first world-type of problems one could have. But that’s just to say the hotel industry is behind, technologically speaking.

startup mergerventure-backed M&A

Phree is a digital stylus that works on any surface – almost
Developed by Israel-based OTM Technologies, Phree is a digital pen that you can use to, in the words of the CEO, express yourself anywhere, anytime on any surface. Well, almost any surface.
