  • The Sea Fort that Was Transformed Into A Luxury Hotel

    This is a reality. Spitbank Fort, a 19th century sea fort was recently converted into  a nearly $6 million luxury hotel. Located off the coast of Portsmouth, in the English Channel, the fort was originally build by Lord Palmerston to protect one of Britain’s most important naval bases from attacks by Napoleon the III’s navy. The 7,000 sq ft base can only be reached via boat or helicopter keeping it, just about as exclusive as Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont. The hotel now features a total of eight bedrooms, an “Officer’s Mess” restaurant, a bar, fire pit, pool and sauna, and a lighthouse. There are also talks of renovating ‘No Man’s Land Fort’ into a twenty seven bedroom, larger version of Spitbank in the coming future.

  • Elon Musk and the Magnificent Hyperloop. Reality or Sci-Fi?

    Elon Musk is the real life Tony Stark, in fact he was the inspiration for the characters demeanor in the Iron Man films. A brilliant man, from South Africa, Musk has managed to hit home runs with some of his larger endeavors including PayPal and more recently co-founded Tesla Motors. Now, the plan is to take the technology of Tesla for a solar-powered, city-to-city elevated transit system that could take passengers and cars from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes. There are nay sayers coming out of the woodwork, projecting how the project can and will never be built, but Musk thinks ideas already in motion, such as California’s $70 billion high-speed train, is  too expensive, slow, and impractical. The Hyperloop offers a counter offer, estimating costs could be built for $6 billion with people-only pods, or $10 billion with pods capable of holding people and cars and would be four times as fast as the competing train, at one-10th the price.

  • Is “Just Add Water” Beer The Future?

    Lugging around a 30 pack of brews can be a back breaking process, until now. Pat’s Backcountry Beverages is claiming to have perfected a process that removes the water from beer, claiming  the nearly waterless beer concentrate “contains all the great flavor, alcohol, and aroma of a premium quality micro brew.” If this actually works it could completely change the way we drink ice cold brews.  But they are also quick to point out that this isn’t simply dehydrated beer. “Unlike other concentrate processes, this is not just about making the beer and then ‘removing’ the water afterwards (which is extremely energy inefficient). Instead, our process (patent pending) allows us to start with almost no water, and carefully control the environment of the fermentation. The result, a concentrated beer with all the same great taste you’re used to in a premium micro brew. All you do is add water, carbonate, and enjoy.” The brewery has perfected a device called a Carbonator which is for sale on their website. The Carbonator brings the individual elements, highly concentrated beer, water and carbonation, back together giving you “good old beer” to enjoy.
