Do not attempt to adjust your monitor. The image below is not actually a pair of high tech speakers mounted on a steam iron–but rather Super Nova 60, “the world’s first carbon neutral megayacht,” by Sauter Carbon Offset Design, which comes to us by way of Gizmag.
The Super Nova 60 comes complete with a entire suite of alt energy sources, such as photovoltaic cells and power sailing kinetic energy generators–producing enough juice, via the elements, to cruise a carbon neutral for a cool 7,000 nautical miles a year. Plug it on at the dock and it can actually feed energy back into the grid .(Perhaps, we imagine, even offsetting some megaluxury yacht-club dues.)
The Super Nova makes use of multiple Mercedes Benz BlueTec diesel electric drives supported by adjustable camber, fully rotational wingsails, power sailing and wave motion energy regeneration, a 650 square meter solar cell array and a plug-in lithium ion storage system/uninterruptible power supply (UPS) rated at 1,000 Kwh. It boasts 1,600 kW of power.
