1 Paddleboat with an onboard battery for high speed on Mon Sep 13, 2010 8:29 am
Pedal-electric hybrid concept boat.
Designed by Manuel Schneider, “1Liaison” is a paddleboat that offers you much more than high levels of enjoyment. The paddleboat comes with an onboard battery for high speed boating. The propeller-driven boat can be powered by pedals just like a normal boat, but here the pedals are connected to a dynamo that recharges the battery.
The boat’s sensor system measures how strongly the user can pedal and adjusts the electric power going into the battery accordingly. The harder the user pedals the more electricity is led to the battery. Once the batteries are full, users would be allowed to sit back and enjoy a high speed ride.
Apart from being single occupancy, this boat is really great for all who love to spend an evening on the peaceful waters.
