SeaBubbles, a flying taxi that operates in water, zoomed across the River Seine in Paris. According to french yachtsman Alain Thebault the vehicle is 100% electric and autonomous during its rides and is charging while people are getting in and out.
When it reaches 7.5 mph, the Bubble starts flying above the water. “Sea Bubbles” hopes to sell its first models at the Vivatech Conference in Paris on Thursday.
The co-founder says it could revolutionize travel on the waterways of major cities and put an end to traffic jams. Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo, who has spearheaded the closing off of a riverside road in favor of pedestrians, supported Seabubbles, taking a trip on it last June.
Emmanuel Macron, France’s pro-business president who wants to create a “startup nation”, even championed the idea when he was finance minister.
