Freedom Ship International

Live On A Multi-Billion Dollar Floating Community

Ever wanted to drop everything, move onto a boat and sail the world on a floating community? Well, congratulations, you may just have your chance! This week the International Business Times reported that the Freedom Ship, which was put on hold due to the economic fiasco, is now seeking investors and will cost an estimated $10 billion. The community will have enough room for 100,000 people, which breaks down as 40,000 residents, 30,000 daily visitors, 10,000 nightly hotel guests and 20,000 full time crew, all while sailing around the world once every two years. What are some of the features? The Freedom Ship will be equipped with hospitals, schools, parks and even a small airport. Living in a floating community does not come at a cheap price, though. The apartments will run anywhere from $200,000 to over $9 million.

Amazon Drones...They're Coming

By now you have likely heard that Amazon is attempting to launch a drone strike called Prime Air that will likely be ready in 2015. Just kidding about the strike, these will be friendly drones, and the best part is that they will be able to deliver your package thirty minutes after you hit the ‘Order’ button on Amazon. The Amazon drones still need to be cleared by the FAA to zip around in US airspace, which is why it will likely take a few years before you will see one flying about delivering packages.
