Solar Powered Boat

So you might look a little bit like a goob in one of these, but on the upside you’ll be saving the environment, and not murdering flipper. The Solar Powered Boat contains 4 deep cycle batteries (holds 6 hour charge) which powers a 700-watt electric motor to move you and 3 of your favorite buds from dock to dock at a whopping top speed of 5mph on your daily booze cruise. Probably not ideal for open ocean adventures and at $10,500 (available here) you’d probably be best off buying a fancy jet ski that murders harmless sea creatures with water polluting fuel toxins.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

    I think people are now looking too hard to find things to make “green”. How much pollution does all the world personal boats emit each year? Answer: Not enough to care. And if it isn’t cheaper, I’m sure no one else is going to either.

    Just my 2 cents…
