…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Rinspeed sQuba?

Rinspeed sQuba

When I first saw pictures of the Rinspeed sQuba car, I thought it was a clever Photoshop or some sort of concept car art piece.

However, the sQuba is real, and can both drive on land and “fly” underwater.

Dubbed “the world’s first real submersible car”, it features three electric motors, two Seabob jet drives, zero exhaust emissions, LED lighting technology, VDO controls that work underwater, and a fully salt-water resistant interior/exterior.

Drive it into the water and it floats along the surface like a buoy. Then, just crack the door and it sinks into the depths. Hop out though, and the driverless (diverless?) car floats to the surface automatically.

James Bond, eat your heart out.

…It’s Things Thursday: Neiman Marcus Christmas Book?

Neiman Marcus 100 Anniversary Edition Christmas BookIt is Thanksgiving, so I am going to spend some quality time with the family today instead of updating DYH (Plus, you should be spending some quality time with your family today as well instead of reading DYH!) but it is also Thursday, so I do want to at least leave you with something to check out for Things Thursday.

Thus, if you’re already starting to think about what to get those special someones for the holidays, then be sure to check out Neiman Marcus’s Christmas Book.

This year marks their 100th anniversary of the Christmas Book, and The 100 Anniversary Edition is filled with as much gift giving cheer as ever.

Plus, their Fantasy Gifts section is, as always, filled with the gifts that dreams are made of.

From NM edition Lexus IS Fs to personal submarines to classical concerts to an entire rocket racing league franchise, it’s a millionaire’s playground, and you’re invited to take a peak.

Don’t have a seven figure budget?

Don’t worry, the Christmas Book is filled with plenty of gifts for the normal gift giver as well; but it is fun to dream…
