It’s hard to even give a name to this unique structure — is it a boat or an island? The Osros floating island was designed as a way to have the best of both worlds.

The floating island includes six luxury double bedrooms, with space for 12 residents and four staff members. The boat is priced at £3 million.

The manufacturers describe the island as an “autonomous power supply based energy system” powered by a noiseless wind energy system. The island also features over 120 m2 of solar panels. Heat recovery from the sea water is used for heating and air conditioning.

The company explains: “In the beginning, my goal was to create an exclusive, high-quality hotel chain based on floating platforms. With the progress of the project it became clear that the attractive and unusual concept of Orsos Islands should not be limited to only a selected group of people.”

“Orsos Islands should reach a much broader audience, people with an awareness of modern life and a feeling of responsibility towards the environment.”

The Austrian company began construction of the prototype in Germany and Hungary. The company’s goal is to show the structure to the public by the end of 2013.

Others don’t because brushing in the morning alone has proven sufficient in keeping their teeth white. And then there are those who are just too lazy to […]

The Most Hipster Thing To Ever Happen Are These Vinyl Beard Combs (Photos)

On the first day, there was vinyl. On the second, the beard. And on the third… vinyl beard combs. I think it’s safe to say hipsters have officially peaked. We must give some credit to the vendor of these marketable combs, Upstairs Shop, because it really knows how to capitalize on that hipster niche. Selling […]
