floating, not sinking


Airbnb continues to come up with clever, eye-catching gimmicks to grab our attention. They’ve put pop-up rentals on ski jumps and on moving cable cars, now the world-dominating rental juggernaut has floated a 70-ton house—complete with garden, grass and trees— up and down the Thames in London. You find out more about the project and even enter the competition to stay in the floating hotel right here.

  1. Easy to jump out of the window and go swimming, but I’m not sure I’d quite trust the Thames water. Still, it’s going to be a marvelous experience for somebody. I hope they film it. I’d like to see the inside.
