Y-40 Is The World’s Deepest Pool

sys_media_107519-750x733

Located within the 4-star Hotel Terme Millepini in Montegrotto Terme, Italy, is the world’s deepest pool. It’s called Y-40, The Deep Joy. The name refers to the Y-axis (the vertical one), and -40 meters of depth (that’s 131 feet). It’s about 5 meters deeper than the previous world’s deepest pool, the Nemo 33, in Belgium. Containing 4,300 cubic meters (151,853 cu. ft.) of spa water maintained at a constant temperature of 32-34c (around 90F), you don’t need a wet suit to dive down. And on your way to the bottom you’ll encounter four caves for technical underwater training, as well as a viewing tunnel for curious onlookers. We’re not sure about regular admission prices, but a poster on their website advertises 100 dives for 2,000€, which works out to about $25 a dive.

Every Traveler Needs One: Travel Door Stop Alarm

Travel Door Stop Alarm

Traveling on a budget shouldn’t mean having to compromise your security. Unfortunately, going for the cheaper hotel sometimes means outdated locks or alarm systems. Although this isn’t always the case, it’s better to be safe than to be sorry, and that’s where this handy dandy travel door stop alarm comes in.

It’s a portable alarm that you can jam under the door for some extra security. If or when someone attempts to enter your room, it will emit a 120-db alarm to let you (and the whole building) know that there’s an intruder at the door.

Travel Door Stop Alarm1

Aside from travel, you could also use it on any other door, whether it’s your dorm room or apartment or office. It retails for about $8.

Happy? These Happiness Blankets Will Let the Crew Know

Happiness Blanket

 

Love the food being served during your flight? Annoyed at how the front passenger’s reclined seat invades your personal space? Whatever it is you’re feeling, these Happiness Blankets will let British Airways’ people know in the hopes of providing better service to every passenger that comes on board.

The Happiness Blankets are hooked up to a headband made by MyndPlay that measures its wearer’s brainwaves, which are then monitored for changes that indicate anxiety or relaxation. The fiber optics woven into the blanket then turn blue when the passenger is relaxed, and red if they’re stressed, providing flight attendants with a visual cue on the current state of the passengers. They’ve been tested on first-class passengers so far, yielding results that were quite obvious. Maybe they should spread these blankets around to those in economy and work on reducing whatever it is that’s making people see red in that seat class, don’t you think?
