The Unidentified Floating Object Home Concept

Originally published on DISINFO and written by Harry Henderson

Jet Capsule, know for their mini yachts and other prefab home concepts, has drawn up a concept for a saucer-shaped UFO that floats on the ocean and is completely off the gird.

The company’s co-founders, Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla, said the concept is intended for “living in a floating house and moving slowly around the world.” “Slowly” in this case means a maximum speed of 3.5 knots (6.5 km/h, 4 mph), using a waterjet-propelled Torqeedo Deep Blue 1800 electric motor.

The company is currently seeking investors to build the first working prototype, at an estimated cost of US$800,000, with homes produced after that estimated at $200,000, which is actually cheaper than the average price of an, albeit larger, houseboat.”
