It was no surprise last week when Zaha Hadid was chosen to design the 2022 Qatar World Cup stadium. Far more interesting is that the country is planning floating hotels that can house upwards of 25,000 visitors for the global event. The hotels would sit offshore from Doha and be linked to the land by boats and new transit lines. 

In other news, robots allow you to virtually hang out in the office, and check out London Underground maps made of LEGO. See the headlines after the jump.
