The Vizu Jaus By Alric Galindez ($NFS) is a glorious open plan home that shines as the summer sun bounces off its black metal skin and streams through its large panoramic windows. The surrounding views further elevate this plot which is partially set into a sacred Patagonian site. Moving inside rich dark wood clads some of the walls and contrasting brilliant white furniture helps to add another dimension. Beautiful gardens surround the decking and features a seating area for looking out over the spectacular views.
In that past we've written stories on luxury convertible boats, but the Kormaran Concept ($TBA) takes the idea of a transforming watercraft to an entirely new level. The boat is the brain child of a small Austrian company and features a full carbon fiber hull. The Kormaran can be used as a monohull, flyer, catamaran, trimaran, or transform into a luxury bathing deck. When hydrofoils are in use, water resistance is decreased by 80%. This means you'll be able to reach higher speeds while using less energy. Additional features include formula 1 and lightweight aircraft technology. Here's hoping we get to see this guy in action in the future.
If you love to camp, there is no reason why you have to rough it. The Dub Box Camper Trailer ($TBA) features vintage style with all the amenities of home. The camper easily sits four adults, has a double bed, and custom kitchenette. What's great about the Dub Box is that you can have it your way. You can customize your colors, upholstery, cupboards, flooring, blinds and much more. Additional features include a 110 volt hook up, insulation, toilet, and the Dub box is very light weight so you can tow it even with a small car.
