Paris (Web Desk): An Italian firm designed a boat that uses human energy to sail down the Seine River in Paris.
According to Italian media, Carlo Ratti Associati, an Italian firm, came up with a brilliant idea to inspire people to exercise more at a very exotic location.
The boat is 65-feet-long (20-meter long) and holds up to 45 people. The energy generated by a workout at the gym can actually help to propel a boat.
The company said, “Paris’ Navigating Gym used the potential of harnessing human power. It’s still in development, but the designers estimate that it could be completed in 18 months.”
It functions by converting the pedal power into utility grade electricity. However, if there won’t be enough passengers on-board to run the ship, it will be able to use renewable energy sources, like the photovoltaic cells on its roof.
Now, tourists can enjoy their ride in the Seine River of Paris while burning some extra calories.
