These floating SeaPods have the appearance of having been taken from a science fiction film, but in reality, they are fully furnished homes that can be inhabited by real people. Remember the sky tower that the character played by Tom Cruise in the science fiction film Oblivion from 2013 used? a similar concept recast in a different form.
The SeaPods are situated approximately 2.5 meters (8 feet) above the ocean and provide a total of 830 square feet of habitable area across three levels. The kitchen, dining area, and living room are all located on the second floor of the pods, while the bedrooms and baths are located on the top floor of the pods. Additionally, the ground floor, sometimes known as the base level, is open to any modifications.
In addition, there is a terrace and panoramic windows totaling 575 square feet in each pod. You probably already guessed that these pods also host a technology convention. Residents have complete remote control over every aspect of their living space, including the temperature of their rooms, the water pressure in their showers, the lighting, and more. There is an app for that, but there is also a unique smart ring that the owner can wear in place of the app if they so choose.
How does it work? It’s easy; all you have to do to adjust the temperature, the lights, and the music is wave your palm in front of the sensor. It is even possible to utilize it to unlock the doors for you. The pods are constructed by a business known as Ocean Builders in Panama, but they are adaptable enough to be erected in any location.
They are also outfitted with catering drones that can be used to bring food and other things to the pods when they are in use. They are so versatile that even taking out the trash may be done with them. Prices for the floating pods will range from $295,000 to $1.5 million, and they will be available for order beginning in September. The price will depend on the level of customization that the owner desires. The initial rollout of 1,000 pods is scheduled to take place in 2024, following the delivery of the first one hundred units in the third quarter of 2023.
