Kiwi businessman Wayne Eyre dropped a pretty penny on this fantasy home theater build, but the results are impressive. Many have suggested that it’s supposed to be Captain Nemo’s Nautilus, but there’s no mention of deliberate Verne overtones in the original article. The last photograph above, for instance, shows leaking “plutonium torpedoes” in part of the installation, but plutonium wasn’t even discovered until 50 years after 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was published.

    That $100k is in NZ$. That works out to be about $71000US at the current exchange rate.

    Definitely not the Nautilus from 20000 Leagues. That had no periscope!
