Outlandish Turtle-Shaped Floating City 

Italian designers created plans for a solar-powered "terayacht" shaped like a turtle. The vessel, called the Pangeos, would feature hotels, shopping centers, and parks and be able to house up to 60,000 guests. Currently, this floating city is only a concept. But if this massive watercraft comes to fruition, it will become the largest floating structure ever invented. Learn more about the Pangeos in the Daily Mail's article.
