SeaBubble Flying Water Taxis Will Debut in Paris This Summer

Seabubble flying water taxi 1

This is a really cool concept, will be interesting to see how it plays out this summer!

From MyModernMet.

Designed by Alain Thébault and Anders Bringdal, the new vehicles will offer a futuristic alternative to standard, street-traveling cabs and shared water taxis. Due to special, submerged “wings” hidden below the water, they are able to “fly” a few inches above the surface. With fares comparable to Uber, each SeaBubble will seat 5 people (for now, this includes a driver) and will be available for hire at special docks along the river. SeaBubble taxis will be powered by electricity, making them an eco-friendly transport option. Since they will gracefully glide through the air at a maximum speed of 30 km/hour, they will be refreshingly silent and generate no waves.
