Tinuku ~ French sailor Alain Thebault and Swedish professional windsurfer Anders Bringdal has completed the design SeaBubbles as a taxi service on the water urban landscape. The plane was designed as a solution to traffic congestion and urban air pollution using solar energy and two foot hovering over the water without creating waves at maximum speed.

Alain Thebault and Anders Bringdal immediately realize the SeaBubbles concept as river taxis use the module to accommodate up to four passengers and the driver. Futuristic water transport modes can be invoked through a smartphone application to take passengers at a speed of 6-8 knots in the water.

SeaBubbles using biodegradable material structure, has two legs to float on the water and 40 percent fewer obstacles than a motor boat of the same size. The vehicle can operate in rivers and lakes efficiently without creating waves at full speed.

"Water is free infrastructure. Humans have built large cities around the river, lake or bay, but filled with cars over the edge. A lot of space that could be used on water," said Alain Thebault.



"From San Francisco ... SeaBubbles between Bridge Bay and the Facebook headquarters will save you an hour in the morning and one hour to get back in the evening, for every employee to do this trip. Imagine the time savings and pollution," Thebault said.

Each flying taxi has length 14.1 feet (4.3 meters) and wide 7.5 feet (2.3 meters) moves using solar energy. The first unit will be test on Seine river, Paris, during summer 2017 and the company is already in talks with major cities in the world are London, New York and Geneva to implement futuristic vehicle in local waters.
