Travel The World On Your Own Private Island
This Post has No Comments
Ahh – owning your own private island. The ultimate in luxury, and more importantly, status. Johnny Depp has a Caribbean hidaway and so does Richard Branson. Leonardo DiCaprio has one off the coast of Belize. Now you can have one too, only yours can travel with you!
Yes, the age of the portable island is upon us. Orsos Island is an entirely manmade structure, set to compete with luxury destinations like the Seychelles and the Caribbean – but it can travel all over the globe. That is because the 1,000-metre island floats on water – a cross between a tropical getaway and a high-end yacht. Owners and guests will be able to indulge in all the traditional Island pastimes on Orsos; the structure includes everything from a sun deck lined with tropical palm trees, to BBQs and an ‘Island bar’. You can take a dip into the Ocean from the deck and if you want to hit the mainland, all you need to do is hop onto one of the Islands speed boats. Your floating home even boasts a jacuzzi!
The Island is economically friendly, it is powered by solar panels and a wind and water heat energy system, and is completely self sustainable.
Not only does each island have solar panels to take advantage of the beautiful weather, but is also powered, both day and night, by a noiseless wind energy system. The island also takes heat from the sea water in order to power the heating and air conditioning. All of this is controlled by an intelligent computer system that monitors the entire energy management process.
So, how badly do you want one? Well first the bad news; they won’t be ready until 2013. The good news; it will give you time to save up for the $4.6 million price tag!
