The Next Generation Of Drones Are Here.

Designer Ron Ferencz wants you to meet the “ROV”, a new ‘Remote Operated Vehicle’. Most drones dominate the skies, but ROV’s cooler than most drones. It operates underwater. The ROV’s design is a classic blend of bio-mimicry and form-follows-function. It retains its drone-esque character while roughly emulating the way a fish moves from left to right to cut across the water. A drone would be incomplete with the visually dominant fans, and ROV has three of them towards the rear. The main fan triggers upwards and downwards movement, while the pair at the complete end are responsible for propulsion.While we’re on the subject of what drones would be incomplete without, the ROV also comes with a pretty nifty camera that allows one to not just navigate the drone, but also take some rather nifty underwater footage. Pool party or Nat Geo? Where do you see this being used the most?  Let us know.

Champion Jet-Skier Franky Zapata Develops a Hoverboard for the Water


champion-jet-skier-franky-zapata-develops-a-hoverboard-for-the-water-0

From the creator of the Flyboard – a jet-pack-inspired rotating platform designed specifically for the water, champion jet-skier Franky Zapata reveals the Hoverboard. Using the same technology as its predecessor, but with a single slalom water ski, the board is attached to a long hose with a single hydro-jet spewing water at a rate that will send its rider 30-feet into the air doing somersaults and flips on the way down. Priced at a whooping, yet expected $6,000 USD, check out how you could rent or even sell Zapata’s Hoverboard.

Seabob Cayago Underwater Jetski


Seabob-Cayago-Underwater-Jetski-1

The Seabob Cayago F7 turns you into a much less fish-chatty Aquaman, propelling you through water at speeds up to 9 mph. You use your own weight to steer and angle the Seabob up or down, with the onboard computer display showing you your power usage, water temperature, speed, and depth. This is apparently the first jet system in the world that features an impeller; an electric-powered rotor that sucks water in and fires it out back out of the watercraft. Since no one needs a case of the bends, all underwater models from Seabob are set to a maximum depth of 2.5 meters but scuba divers can override that and set it 40 meters.

The Miracle Machine, which promises to turn water, yeast, grape concentrate, and finishing powder packets into a DIY wine. Just sync the machine up with its corresponding iOS or Android app, mix in the ingredients, and then give it three days. After 72 hours, wine will appear where there was once just water (and those other ingredients). Choose from six varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Chardonnay, Oregon Pinot Noir, a Tuscan blend, Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, and a red and white from Burgundy. The makers say despite the brand newness of it all, the wine will taste likes it’s been aged to perfection.

Production has begun on Italian boat company jet capsule‘s latest invention, a private 5 person and nine person taxi version. After the initial concept presentation five years ago, the unusual form was finally unveiled at the 2013 monaco show, where the design team sought to create a floating transportation device that was different from all others on the market. The innovation, which is 7,5 meters long and 3,5 meters wide is a fully customizable product that allows several configurations, including one with transformable sofas, a boat taxi with large seats and a luxury version with integrated comfort features. Several other versions are currently under development for ambulance and emergency purposes. The current capsule model has a built-in hydro-jet system that can be equipped with one or two engines, but the team are also working on the first electrically powered design to be presented in june 2014. All the jets come with an international sail certification and can navigate and operate in any country/region, and waves of up to 4 meters.

Designed by Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew, the sustainable floating house is the perfect way to get away from all the daily stresses one experiences living in an urban environment. This house literally floats on the water, and thanks to the floor to ceiling windows adorning the dwelling, residents get to fully enjoy these 360-degree ocean views from sun up to sunset. The home was created for French firm H2ORIZON, and was constructed from sustainable materials. The residence is quite spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room kitchen, and terrace. The home also features luxury finishes throughout, and with the ability to gently float through the water, you’ll be able to enjoy everything nature has to offer without causing any disruption.
