Anyone who uses Facebook can safely assume that to the company we are all one type of one thing: bundles of sellable data. The massive social network is more than one thing to its customers, however. Some of us use it to keep tabs on distant friends, for instance, and others to promote their creative works, or “literally” too-cute toenails.

Sealander is the Floating Camper You Didn’t Know You Needed

Camping under the night sky is great, but what do you do when solid ground just seems… predictable?

Enter Sealander – one of the first towable trailers meant for both ground and waterborne camping.

German designer Daniel Straub developed the concept that officially went on sale in 2014. It’s sold 50 units since then in a rather grassroots campaign.

“It’s for someone that needs more flexibility and freedom in a vacation,” he says.

NSA Building Quantum Computer for Decoding Encryption Keys
