The Vdara hotel is 57-story luxurious hotel that boasts every amenity you can image. The condo-like rooms are all non-smoking, feature a giant kitchen, and even washer/dryers. This award-winning building is also an archetectual marvel - it's mirror-like facade is concave, which means....
It reflects the sun and create a "Death Ray" effect for some poor unfortunate vacationers down on the pool deck. Modern engineering couldn't figure this out? It's freaking Nevada. And if any of them had paid attention in physics class, concave reflective surfaces easily reflect things like light, laser, and sun beams.
Unfortunately, one of these sorry victims happened to be Chicago attorney, Bill Pintas. Chicago attorney Bill Pintas felt the power of the dangerous ray first hand last week.
The picture to the left, by the way is NOT Mr. Pintas.
On the Vdara Hotel's website, they claim: "Stay at the Vdara, and the experience will stay with you forever."
Um, yeah. Those burn marks are forever etched into your flesh.
