While enjoying a brief stint as a receptionist for the magazine Town and Country in 1966, Linda McCartney managed to bag herself a press pass for an uber exclusive promotional event with the Rolling Stones on a yacht on the Hudson River. Her candid, fresh shots of the band were found to be way superior to those taken by the Stones' official photographer, and Linda was on her way to becoming one of top rock n' roll photographers in the world. She entered the record books in 1968 by becoming the first female photographer to have an image on the cover of Rolling Stone with her now iconic image of Eric Clapton. Linda Mccartney: Life In Photographs ($35) encapsulates the spirit of the real Linda and shows younger generations how she was way more than just the wife of a Beatle.

Let's just say you have so much cash that you're running out of ways to spend it. Well, the team over at Schwinge might have a little something that'll wet your whistle. How about a flying pyramid that looks like a spaceship. I'm talking about their Schwinge HYSWAS Tetrahedron Superyacht ($TBA). Once this superyacht gains enough speed, it's lifted out of the water via side-mounted adjustable hydrofoils, which provides smooth long distance travel without the inconvenience of waves slamming into the side of the ship. An autopilot system controls roll forces and maintains foil born speed to help control pitch and heave. Even in the worst storms, this setup achieves virtually no slamming. Shwinge is working with a large superyacht yard to complete development of the project.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22533,22532,22531"]
