An Austrian company has revealed plans for a luxury floating island that can transported wherever its occupants wish.
Work on the prototype has already begun. The project, called ORSOS Islands, should be open to the public at the end of 2013.
Facilities would include a jacuzzi, a large sun deck and aquarium, as well as 1,000 square metres of living space. Powered by a noiseless wind energy system and solar panels, the island is very eco-friendly.
The founder, Gábor Orsós, explained: "In the beginning, my goal was to create an exclusive, high-quality hotel chain based on floating platforms. With the progress of the project it became clear that the attractive and unusual concept of Orsos Islands should not be limited to only a selected group of people. Orsos Islands should reach a much broader audience, people with an awareness of modern life and a feeling of responsibility towards the environment."
The cost of the luxury floating island will start at £3 million for the most basic model.
