EGO Personal Semi-Submarine: No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dive.

EGO Personal Semi-Submarine: No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dive.
I’ve probably watched too many James Bond movies, but a personal submarine sounds pretty cool, no matter what. While this started out as a concept a couple of years ago, it’s actually available for purchase now.

Hot Tub Boats: Because Hot Tug Boats Just Sounded Wrong

Hot Tub Boats: Because Hot Tug Boats Just Sounded Wrong
While they’re not capable of moving you through space and time like a Hot Tub Time Machine, these Hot Tub Boats can at least transport you through water – because why bother swimming, when your boat can do it for you?

Steve Jobs Venus Yacht: Not Yet Available at the Apple Store

Steve Jobs Venus Yacht: Not Yet Available at the Apple Store
I have never been one for boats or yachts, but even I could be persuaded to give yacht-life a try in this magnificent vessel that was co-designed by the Apple-master himself, Steve Jobs. This was the boat that Steve Jobs was working on until his untimely death in 2011.

Man Tries to “Walk” Across Irish Sea in a Hamster Wheel, Fails

Man Tries to “Walk” Across Irish Sea in a Hamster Wheel, Fails
It always amazes me how humans will do so many silly stunts. I’m not sure if that makes us stupid or awesome, but it’s always entertaining. Chris Todd made a homemade floating hamster wheel boat so that he could “walk” across the Irish Sea.

HotTug Hot Tub Boat: Take a Dip While You Sail in a Hot Tub

HotTug Hot Tub Boat: Take a Dip While You Sail in a Hot Tub
The HotTug Tub Boat is a hot tub in a boat. The thing is, there isn’t really much of a boat aside from the hot tub itself. So I guess the HotTug really is just a floating hot tub.

The Expandable Wider Yacht: Transformer of the Sea

The Expandable Wider Yacht: Transformer of the Sea
Ever wanted a yacht? How about one that works like a Transformer? This new yacht expands so that you can enjoy it even more. Once fully-deployed, this yacht ends up with a walkable surface of 193.5 square feet with a width of 21.6 feet, which was apparently unthinkable a couple of years ago for a 42 foot yacht.

FishPi Drone Relies on Inexpensive Raspberry Pi Computer to Cross the Ocean
With all this talk about unmanned drones, it was only a matter of time before a couple of interesting projects would surface. Check out FishPi, an unmanned water vessel which will run a cheap Raspberry Pi computer to try and cross the Atlantic Ocean.

The Turanor PlanetSolar is now the first completely solar-powered boat to complete the circumnavigation of the globe. The solar powered catamaran set sail from the port 19 months ago and is the world’s largest solar powered boat.

LEGO Omniboat Proves Bricks Can Float

LEGO Omniboat Proves Bricks Can Float
I’ve seen a lot of impressive land–based LEGO vehicles, but this is the first one I’ve encountered that’s built for water. Unless you count Harry the Hermit Crab’s colorful home. Made by Vimal Patel, the Omniboat may have an unorthodox shape, but it makes up for it by gliding gracefully on water.

Tentanic: Camping for You and 999 of Your Closest Friends

Tentanic: Camping for You and 999 of Your Closest Friends
I have never been big on camping, but the Tentanic might just change my mind. In case you’re wondering, the Tentanic is a tent of massive proportions, with a name that was drawn from one of the most well-known cruise ships in history: the Titanic.

Nikko VaporizR Amphibious R/C Car Goes from Land to Water and Back Again

Nikko VaporizR Amphibious R/C Car Goes from Land to Water and Back Again
R/C cars can be fun, but if you accidentally crash yours into the swimming pool, it’s probably a goner. Not so with this one, which can not only run on dry land, but can drive in water or snow.

Hydrogen-Powered Boat Creates Own Fuel from the Water

Hydrogen-Powered Boat Creates Own Fuel from the Water
Is it possible that this boat might be one of the first completely self-sustaining water crafts available? I don’t know, but the description sure makes it sound like it is. The new MIG 675 cruiser boat will harvest its own hydrogen directly from the sea.

Iguana 29 Amphibious Yachts: Land or Water, It Doesn’t Matter

Iguana 29 Amphibious Yachts: Land or Water, It Doesn’t Matter
Sick of the sea? This new motorboat from Iguana Yachts will deploy treads and let just drive your fancy ship right out of the water when you’re ready to get back on dry land. Why does this remind me of a James Bond movie?

Outboard Engine Drink Blender Runs on Gasoline: But Will it Blend?

Outboard Engine Drink Blender Runs on Gasoline: But Will it Blend?
This has to be one of the most unusual household appliances I’ve ever seen. What you’re looking at here is an old Johnson outboard motorboat engine, converted into a blender. Why? Because nobody had done it before, I guess.

Adhoc Folding Canoe for a Quick Water Getaway

Adhoc Folding Canoe for a Quick Water Getaway
Have you ever felt the need for an emergency boat? Nope, me neither. Well, in any case, the Israeli designer Ori Levin from Tsor Design created Adhoc, a full-sized canoe that can be folded into a bag of the size of a standard backpack.

Robot Jet Ski Patrols Harbors Looking for Baddies

Robot Jet Ski Patrols Harbors Looking for Baddies
