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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
