SeaBubbles Autonomous River Taxis
Paris-based SeaBubbles is aiming to redefine urban travel not by taking to the air, but to the sea. Their new autonomous transportation service is based around pod-like "Bubble" boats that use foils to raise up off the water, eliminating seasickness and providing a smoother ride. The boats are 100% electric, automatically charging at designated Docks that also serve as pick-up and drop-off points. While a concrete rollout timeline has yet to be announced, the company hopes to offer its app-based service in more than 50 cities within the next five years.
