Here's something that'll fit perfectly within the Bond universe: a patio that transforms into a swimming pool at the click of a button. No need to look any further for something that'll go well with that fancy morphing table in the mansion of your dreams.
The pool is equipped with a mechanism that controls its tile cover: Lower it to flood the space with water when you want to swim or lift it up to create room for a summer barbecue with friends. You can even control how deep you want the water to be, which is perfect if you have kids. Pool-loving, belly-flopping grown-ups don't need to worry, though, as it has a maximum depth of 6'.
Stefan Kanetis came up with the pool's design when his arthritic mother was advised by a doctor to exercise in a body of water. Now, Stefan's company can customize one for your home — if you're willing to pay 20% to 30% more than what an in-ground pool will cost you, that is.
Interested? You'll have to contact the company for an accurate quote, but here's a starting point: A typical in-ground house pool could cost anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000, which can only mean that this patio-pool hybrid requires deep pockets.
