Floating Hotel is a really cool option for those who love creative ways of making inland tourism. This award winning project by Salt & Water, consists of a main hotel structure, that includes the restaurant, a common living room area, a caffe and an event hall, you then also get smaller mobile structures, that are in fact small catamarans, that you can use to navigate around the main structure or drift off on solo adventures. These smaller structures can take up to 4 people comfortably, you´ll have a salon, a galley, sleeping quarters, a bathroom and a private deck that you can use for fishing, take a swim or just get the tan going. You get the static structure comfort and size, plus the mobility and intimacy of the catamarans, the best of both worlds.

Developed by the same team of engineers and designers behind the DUBS Acoustic Filters, the revolutionary Here Active Listening is a new device that has the intention of enhancing and improving what you hear, it also intends to let you choose what you want to hear. Featuring two wireless ear pieces, it works with a DSP, a digital signal processor, that functions as a sound studio inside your ears. The idea behind it is to enable you to boost the frequency you want to get, like the bass in a live concert, and reduce other frequencies that are "in the way”, so if you´re in an airplane you can reduce the jet engine noise, or if you´re cruising around town you can also reduce traffic or subway noise. You get the usual app that lets you in control of what you hear, the app features a classic volume knob and loads of preset effects that let you quickly set the mode you wish. It uses Bluetooth technology and features long a lasting battery, to give you up to 6 hours of usage. watch the video
