Man (Re)builds Amazing Floating Island

Who hasn't wanted their very own private island? And what if you could build it with some friends and free recycled objects. Sound too good to be true? This guy has built not one but two!

The original Spiral Island was (as its successor will be) built upon a floating collection used plastic bottles, all netted together to support a bamboo and plywood structure above. Located in Mexico, the original was 66 by 54 feet and was able to support full-sized mangroves to provide shade and privacy, yet also able to be moved from place to place by its creator as need with a simple motorized system.


I have had the idea that these could be built and taken to the Polar Bears since the ice is melting and it'd give them something to live on. I'm thinking they'd get all icy and frozen, just like the Polar Bears like.
