This Semi-Submersible Lets You Enjoy Views Above And Below The Water

If diving deep underwater – even in a luxury submarine like the supercar of submarine, the U-Boat Worx HiPer Sub – cannot quell your fear of the deep blue sea, then perhaps, the MSV Explorer Amphibious Semi-Submersible could be the perfect in-between solution. As the name implies, it is a partially submersible watercraft that offers both above- and underwater viewing options. While that alone is a major selling point of this unique vessel, MSV Explorer Amphibious Semi-Submersible does not stop there; it is also an amphibious vehicle too.

Here’s A Real-life BTTF DeLorean That Flies, Well, Kind Of…

What you see here is a hovercraft version of the iconic flying car from the second instalment of Back to the Future. I know right. If the DeLorean from the movie flies, surely it can skim over water too, right? Honestly, I don’t know if it could, but one thing for sure is, this DeLorean Hovercraft surely can. Except that this isn’t an actual DeLorean. It is a custom built hovercraft that has a shell that mimics the look of legendary DeLorean DMC-12 as featured in BTTF trilogy. Continue reading Here’s A Real-life BTTF DeLorean That Flies, Well, Kind Of…

Lexus’ First Luxury Yacht, The LY 650, Is Set To Be Ready In Late 2019

I bet you thought the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept was the last of seafaring vessel from Lexus. Well, the truth is, Lexus is far from over with watercraft. In fact, it is pretty pumped about putting Lexus onto the open waters. Just last month, it has unveiled a 65-foot luxury yacht called LY 650, but unlike the concept seen last year, it will be the first-ever Lexus production yacht and first to use L-finesse, the design language of Lexus, heralding a new era of luxury – Lexus style.

Lee Rosario Literally Takes ‘Amphibious’ To The Next Level Of High

I am sure you know what an ‘amphibious vehicle’ is. In the automotive world, it means a vehicle capable of traversing the water and land, and vice versa, seamlessly, but Lee Rosario’s Hyperlight Aeros takes the meaning of ‘amphibious’ to the next level of high. To be more precise, the designer’s concept of ‘amphibious’ is taking it from under the water, as a submarine, straight into the air as an aircraft. Seriously, dude, this is 100% science fiction, but I absolutely love it! Continue reading Lee Rosario Literally Takes ‘Amphibious’ To The Next Level Of High

This Is Shannon, A Self-righting, Water Jets-Propelled Lifeboat

What is a lifeboat if it can’t save itself, right? I mean, a lifeboat is still a boat and therefore it is not necessary safe from the risks facing every other boats. The Shannon class lifeboat, however, built by life-saving charity Royal National Lifeboat Institution, is an advanced lifeboat that is absolutely safe, so it could carry out its life-saving duties efficiently and with utmost safety.

Ken Block Has A Custom Wakeboard Boat Called Supra Ford Raptor

We all know Ken Block has an insatiable appetite for speed and what you didn’t know is, the man’s need for speed transcends tarmac, dirt track, and snow; water happens to be his thing too and hence the Supra Ford Raptor Boat you see here.

Elon Musk Wants To Save Thai Boys Trapped In Cave With This Mini Sub

As the news of the desperate attempt to rescue a group of Thai boys trapped in a flooded cave reached Elon Musk, he is not going to wait to see what happens. The visionary wants technology to help save the kids from this potentially deadly situation. Already, Boring Company and SpaceX engineers have been dispatched to Thailand to see how they can assist in the rescue of the 12 boys and their soccer coach who are trapped in a cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Continue reading Elon Musk Wants To Save Thai Boys Trapped In Cave With This Mini Sub

This Transformable Speedboat Is Four Types Of Boats Rolled Into One

Boat is not quite favored by Transformers (though throughout history, they did have a few including a sub), but in this real world of ours, there is a transformable boat. Thankfully, this “transformers” is not an alien robot and does not have a mind of its own. From Austrian boat maker KORMARAN, KORMARAN K7 First Edition is a luxury seafaring vessel that is also a catamaran, a trimaran, a monohull speedboat, and a hydrofoil. I know. It does sound a little sci-fi-ish with so many boat types rolled into one futuristic watercraft. But as it turns out, this is no science fiction. Continue reading This Transformable Speedboat Is Four Types Of Boats Rolled Into One

SeaBubbles Wants To Do For The Rivers What Uber Did For The Roads

While most companies are looking to the sky to skip the horrendous urban traffic, one French startup, SeaBubbles, is looking to the rivers for answers to one of the most pressing urbanization issues. And SeaBubbles’ answer? River taxis. But mind you, they are not just any river taxi. It will be autonomous, electric-driven and quick – thanks to hydrofoil technology each of these water cars will be riding on. The aim? To provide a river transportation network much like what Uber did for the roads. But what SeaBubbles is embarking on is clearly requires a lot more work and ironically, networking, before even a network of these vessels could take off above the water. Continue reading SeaBubbles Wants To Do For The Rivers What Uber Did For The Roads

U-Boat Worx HiPer Submarine Looks Like A Supercar Submerged In Water

What you are looking at here is not front end of a supercar. It isn’t an alien spaceship with a thing for supercar either. It is a submarine. A U-Boat Worx personal sports submarine, to be precise, that will allow you to take on the water below the surface and move through it like a supercar. Obviously, in the case of the U-Boat Worx HiPer Sub, there’s no highway to stick to. The entire water below the surface IS one giant, three dimensional highway.
