Is This The Future Of Airborne Cruising?

  The Tetrahedron Super Yacht is conceived by architect Jonathan Schwinge who is based in London. The yacht will be designed to have 4 faces and 6 edges which provides stability and enclosure. The design itself is sharp, sleek, sophisticated and will levitate above the waterline like a spaceship in an elevated mode and will be able to travel at high speed.

I owned a gorgeous 1922 English Tudor, that was a woman's complete dream ~filled with antiques, a completely remodeled kitchen to easily enjoy preparing gourmet meals from scratch, a bourgeois ...
