Living amongst the trees-Ewoks attempt to pass zoning ordinances to keep humans on the ground

Inhabitat ran a post about 2 weeks ago talking about these funky little fishbowls in the trees.

Our Planet Retreats, an innovative UK-based company, is building eco-resorts in gorgeous pristine locations like the Phillipines, Vanatu, and Papua New Guinea. Visiting guests stay in simple floating spheres in the trees that are reached by spiral stairs. Crafted from fiberglass and built by locals, each sphere can accommodate up to 4 people. The first resort is comprised of 12 spheres. Other sustainable features include small solar panels and solar water heating systems.

Read the rest here.

This shot gives you an idea of how spacious(?) the orbs are.

    How do you sleep 4 people in one of those? Vertically?

  2. WEBSCAMMERS.NET - Ryan Flynn Information Says:

    Our Planet Retreats is a creation of one Ryan Flynn (and possibly others). You can read about Ryan and the multitude of “companies” and organisations that he has been behind at http://webscammers.net/rfinfo

    Please do a little research and consider amending or removing this blog entry, as it only serves to further a scammer.

    The spheres in trees do exist, and are created by Free Spirit Spheres in Canada. See http://freespiritspheres.com

    Feedback is appreciated.

    Hi there,

    the Ryan Flynn Information website address has been changed for clarity, though the old address should still work.

    http://webscammers.net/ryan-flynn

    A new WordPress blog has been created to make it easier to find this information.
