I like houseboats and this concept home of the future that when open looks like a Lotus Flower takes floating homes to a new level.  The flower pedals when closed make the vessel look like an egg.  It is actually a yacht or floating home designed by Hyun-Seok Kim who designs yachts.  The cabin portholes provide underwater panoramic views.

The Lotus flower has a water jet engine and eight nozzles attached with water jet control valves. These nozzles control direction amd act as a stabilizing system. Acceleration sensors adjust the nozzles and 16 petals in tandem to control its balance perfectly.  – Inspired

It’s a beautiful to look at and fun to think about.

The petals are for stabilization and resist water waves.

It would be hard to pull kids away from this under the sea experience.  I think it’s compact enough to be set at the end of any lake dock too.
