The Hammocraft: Because Why Not?

hammocraft-1

“Screw-it, let’s do it” has got the be the most American, and awesome, attitude in approaching new product design. It’s definitely what the makers of the Hammocraft told themselves on a beer-fuelled brainstorming session, but what they made is both amazing and ridiculous at the same time. Mostly ridiculous, yes, but amazing for being so. It’s a watercraft first and foremost. And it’s also four hammocks. So that’s it. It’s so that you can go fishing while laying on a hammock. We think.

It’s not even really a water craft, actually. It’s more like a $1,000 kit so that you can make your own craft using two paddle boards, which are not included. Also not included: the hammocks. So yeah, you’re being asked to spend one large on a metal frame that might end up turning into what you see in the pictures. Also required, you and three friends. Not two because balance. And make sure one of them is not super fat, because also balance. It… I mean, it’s a cool idea, sort of. Or maybe not even… Geez, we get it: it’d be awesome to just drink beer all day, while lazily throwing a line down and laying in a hammock. We’re just not sure the Hammocraft is going to get you there.

QS2 Quadrofoil Will Have You Flying Above The Water, Pollution Free

Quadrofoil

Look at this watercraft and tell us it doesn’t scream: the future is here! It’s an electric quadrofoil craft that gets up to 21 knots (40 km/h or 25mph) and has a range of 100km (62 miles). Its all-electric operation means it’ll be relatively silent while floating above water, and not one drop of oil will ever enter the environment. It’s easily steered, is allegedly unsinkable (with a Titanic reference in their material, it’s hard to take it seriously), sits two, and features an anti-collision system that will reduce impact forces in case you run into something.

Of course the future isn’t cheap and the Limited Edition QS2 will set you back a cool 22,500 €, or roughly $28,144USD. But at that price you’ll have the coolest watercraft on the pond, bar none.
