A yacht for $ 15 million controlled by an iPad


What would you do with fifteen million dollars? Surely you wouldn’t come up with the idea of ​​one guy who came up with the idea that he would spend all this money on over forty meters yachtfrom which he will additionally make toy fully controllable from the tablet. As it turns out, the electronics of this luxury watercraft have been modified so that iPad has become a multifunctional remote control for operation and control.

The yacht was prepared by designer John Schuttleworth in China and now belongs to Anthony Mardenwho is a successful businessman and billionaire at the same time. He named his ship Adastra (from Latin ad astrameans to the stars) and it actually looks a bit like a spaceship.

The iPad is used to control the yacht not only from its surface, but also from distances up to fifty metersso that the eccentric billionaire can play with his ship like a small, child’s remote control toy. We have already seen iPads used to drive toy cars, real cars, small helicopters, but the forty-meter yacht beats everything so far. I just wonder what’s next? Any suggestions? 🙂
