Luxury yacht uses iPad as onboard concierge

If you have $600,000 to spare, how about booking a week on this luxury yacht... controlled by iPads. The yacht, named Solemates, allows guests to control various functions while onboard via their iPads. This includes the cabin climate control system, various audio and visual entertainment options as well as lighting and blinds within the cabin.

If you wear yourself out messing around with all these control options on your iPad, you can order a crew member to drop in a refreshing cocktail to pep you up again. Don’t worry if you don’t have an iPad; or left your own at home, the Captain issues them to boarding guests.

This beautiful yacht was launched in Monaco earlier this year and can hit a top speed of 15.5 knots with a range of 7,000 nautical miles. The yacht can carry 12 guests at a time in its spacious cabins.

Now who has $600,000? I am booking the first week of January, who else is coming?
