Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel Seeks INDIEGOGO Crowdsourcing to Fund America’s First Undersea Luxury Hotel Prototype

Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel in Key West is using INDIEGOGO to fund its exciting prototype and, in return, offer spectacular perks to its INDIEGOGO supporters  as they usher in a new era in undersea eco-tourism, exploration, and conservation.

For several years, crowdsourcing has funded many new, innovative projects. Tony Webb, Managing Director of Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel, is diligently working to get funding through one of the top rated crowdfunding platforms on the Internet.  According to Catherine Clifford, senior writer for Entrepreneur.com, Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic and some of his associates have helped to provide INDIEGOGO with a massive infusion of operating capital.

Webb says he would be ecstatic to see his steel prototype being trucked to the Key West test location for installation.  Webb is asking for $325,000 only and is providing high quality perks to his supporters.  Almost all of his perks give each supporter the opportunity to take an one-hour tour and, if there is a vacancy that night, the INDIEGOGO supporters will have a competitive opportunity to stay the night at America’s first undersea luxury hotel. Full details can be found at the INDIEGOGO site.

Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel  (USPTO pat. pending) is designed to allow the ordinary person the ability to enjoy real tranquility, according to the hotel’s website,http://www.USAKW.com.  Plans for the underwater hotel include a custom-made elevator, twelve fabulous guest rooms (two of which will be American with Disabilities Act compliant), a plush lounge and dining area, and a once-in-a-lifetime view of marine life, according to Webb.

The prototype fabrication will take place, if Webb gets his funding, at one of the nation’s leading above-ground and below-ground tank fabricators.  Thick sheets of acrylic will be added and pressure tested at an automated steel fabrication facility.  The prototype will then be trucked on a high visibility tour to Key West, Florida with a fun party and a parade down Key West’s Duval Street. “There is always a reason for a party in Key West and this is a great reason,” stated Webb.

LondonTown.com: London’s love of architecture exhibited at museums in 2014

Whether you are a fan of Tudor churches, elegant Georgian squares, grand Victorian civic buildings, art deco power stations or Brutalist arts complexes, London has some of the finest architecture in the world. This is the city where Wren’s St Paul’s sits alongside Foster’s Gherkin and nobody blinks an eye. London also boasts many of the finest museums in the world, and later this year the two will overlap with a series of exhibitions looking at architecture across the world. For more information on these museums, see LondonTown.com, where you will also find ideas for nearby restaurants, shops and cafes and get the latest prices and availability for London hotel rooms.

The Barbican Centre is a great example of London architecture – a controversial art complex with commanding, austere lines unadorned with needless ornamentation in the manner dubbed Brutalist. Fittingly, this building will hold an exhibition of 250 photographs of 20th century architecture from the 1930s to the present day this autumn calledConstructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age (25th September 2014 – 11th January 2015). Similarly, Ordinary Beauty: the photography of Edwin Smith (10th September – 6th December 2014) will look at the work of a 20th -century photographer who captured British buildings and landscapes. The exhibition will take place at the new gallery at the HQ of RIBA, the Royal Institute of British Architects.

American architect Louis Kahn (9th July – 12th October 2014) will be the focus of a retrospective at the Design Museum, featuring models, drawings, sketches, photographs and films of his greatest buildings including the monumental Salk Institute in California. Finally, the lovely small museum inside the Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner will examine London’s six great War Memorials with We Will Remember Them: London’s Great War Memorials (16th July – 30th November 2014), including the Cenotaph on Whitehall and the profoundly moving Machine Gun Corps Memorial next to the Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner. For more on any of these, see LondonTown.com

Taking place over the weekend of April 7th and 8th, this year’s Field Day returns to Victoria Park in East London with arguably its finest line-up yet.

Joining the Pixies on the Field Day bill will be Saturday’s headline act Metronomy, who return to the festival after a memorable main stage performance in 2012 in support of new album Love Letters. Psychedelic rock outfit Temples, livewire rapper Danny Brown and Drenge, NME’s recently crowned Best New Band, are among a wonderfully eclectic array of acts filling out the bill.

Tickets are available at £48.50 for Saturday, £38.50 for Sunday or £78 for a weekend pass. Attendees looking for handy accommodation in the area will be pleased to learn thatLondon events and hotels specialist LondonTown.com is supporting the festival by offering a selection discounted hotels within easy walking distance of Victoria Park.

LondonTown.com: The Eagles Bring their Story to London

Rock stalwarts the Eagles are bringing their ‘History Of’ tour to London with a hotly-anticipated one night stand at the O2 Arena on June 16th. The show will feature original members Glenn Frey and Don Henley trawl their considerable back catalog, interspersing hits such as ‘Desperado’ and ‘Witchy Woman’ with anecdotes about their long, fruitful career.

The tour has attracted widespread critical acclaim for the intimate approach it takes to the Eagles’ canon. Henley and Frey open the show with nothing but a pair of acoustic guitars and stools. The two perform early hits and explain the founding of the band and the introduction of key members. The excitement builds with each addition to the stage: Timothy B. Schmit, a small drum kit, Joe Walsh, a bigger drumkit – so it goes on until the stage is filled with the supporting musicians and lavish sound associated with the Eagles’ hitmaking latter 70s heyday.

The live performance is accompanied by video content charting the evolution of the band, and the Eagles do what they do best, bringing the show to a thrilling climax with two encores. For eager British audiences, the £ 50+ ticket prices are well worth it to see bona fide 20 th century rock aristocracy in action.

Many will travel from across the country (and beyond) to see their heroes, and a number of London hotels have teamed up with LondonTown.com to offer fans the chance to stay close to the 02 without paying full room rates.

Some of the best hotels in the capital are situated in the Docklands area, close to the arena, and LondonTown.com is offering special rates on many of them, exclusively for guests who book through the site.
