Whether it be an underground bunker or a super armored vehicle, many have imagined how they would survive a post-apocalyptic world, but thanks to this new floating home concept, anyone can get a glimpse of what the future might look like in not only a realistic way, but with style as well.
Designed by the incredibly innovative company, Jet Capsule, the ‘UFO’ is a concept for an underwater saucer-shaped vehicle that offers an off-grid experience in the heart of the deep blue sea. It comes with a motor connected to a battery, essentially making it a contemporary bathyscaphe that can travel seamlessly throughout the water.
Spherically shaped, the ‘UFO’ measures at 12.5 meters in diameter. The shape is divided by the middle – on the lower level, there is a shower as well as bedroom with its own subterranean window while the upper level includes a kitchen and dining area.
Many may wonder how a sphere in the ocean can stay so stable. How can all the utensils in the kitchen not fall when the ship rocks? Will I roll around in bed if there’s some sort of capsize? The answer to all these questions is simple: No. The ‘UFO’ keeps stable with its special elastic anchor system, which aligns itself with its very own compass. This helps keep the position and angle oriented to the desired direction, thus keeping the lower and upper levels as safe as they can get
The inventors of the product have yet to create the ship, but are asking for more investors. Initial prices could be as much as $800,000. In the future, the company hopes to sell the ‘UFO’ homes to everyone by reaching a broader market with the lower price of $200,000. This investment will most likely go through. After all, with flying cars in the making and the recent discovery of self-driving vehicles, an underwater UFO doesn’t sound too out of the ordinary.
