The world's first 'anti-seasickness' yacht

You can toss the Dramamine for around $3 million.

There's a dirty little secret about some of us at Crave that can be summed up in two words: motion sickness. For all the gadgetry we've tried over the years, from sonic-wave machines to magic wristbands, nothing can keep us from doing the old heave-ho, so to speak, on anything that's not sitting perfectly still on terra firma. We've even been known to get queasy on a riverboat casino in New Orleans--while it was docked.

So you can imagine our joy at learning about the first anti-seasickness yacht, which employs an "Anti-Rolling Gyro" stablizing technology that supposedly minimizes side-to-side rocking. The secret of the Ferretti 630's system, according to Luxist, is a motorized 154-pound gyroscope made of steel and aluminum that's stationed at the bottom of the hull. That makes it so much easier to enjoy the craft's other amenities, which include a massage lounge.

All we need to do is come up with $3.2 million or so to buy one. Which means we won't be tossing the Dramamine overboard anytime soon.
