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?
We had a ship-in-a-bottle when I was a kid and it was really cool. I always wondered how exactly they got the thing inside the bottle. I always suspected they cut the bottom off the bottle, then stuck the ship in and glued the bottom back on.
I don’t know if this is that revolutionary, but for a moment I was impressed with the fact that this battery-powered ferry can travel about 80 km with 800 passengers on board.
IHI Marine United is the maker of this plug-in ship that is powered by lithium-ion batteries.
Maybe I haven’t been looking in the right places, but I haven’t noticed an overwhelming amount of crafts inspired by the tragically short-lived Firefly and the accompanying movie, Serenity. Even if I had, however, this little knit rendition of the ship would probably trump most of them.
First we had the watch, and now we have a model. The 6-foot long remote-controlled RMS Titanic is a faithfully reproduced 1:150 scale model. It took 400 man-hours (that’s about 1600 dog-hours, or 879,592 mosquito-hours) to assemble.
Here’s a speaker for your computer that’s unlike anything I’ve seen before. The Nexspeaker FS-701SW sound system is designed to look like a wee sailboat that you can set on your desk.
Left and right channel speakers are embedded into the sails, while the boat’s hull serves as the woofer.
Are you an early adopter like me? If so, I bet you’ve got some old electronic gear lying around and gathering dust. This new service makes it easy to easily make some cold hard lucre in exchange for your old gadgets.
