Smart spheres take glamping to new level in China's great outdoors

Sunguest's high-tech houses allow guests to enjoy mountain scenery in style

Sunguest plans to equip the spherical units with new technology such as virtual reality functions and entertainment devices in the future.

BEIJING -- Mount Wugong, located in the midwest of China's Jiangxi Province, is a popular mountaineering spot renowned for beautiful scenery. Many people stay overnight at its summit, 1,918 meters above sea level, to watch the sunrise -- but not necessarily in comfort.

For topographical reasons, accommodation facilities on the mountain provide only simple beds and are often cold inside due to lack of heating. It begs the question, is it not possible to provide comfortable stays for people who climb the mountain to enjoy the magnificent views?
