Paris is testing a new form of travel: an eco-friendly, bubble-shaped taxi that zips along the water up and down the Seine River, the Associated Press reported.

This week, the organizers are running tests with a white, oval, enclosed electric hydrofoil boat raised to the so-called water wings and it looks like a small space shuttle that glides along the sights of Paris.

The futuristic machine can fit up to four passengers and, if approved, will be able to be ordered with a mobile application such as ordinary taxis, shared bicycles and other forms of transportation, BTA informs.

Its designers hope to run the so-called Seabubbles commercially in Paris and other cities starting next year

“Seabubble” supporters see it as a new model for the rapidly changing landscape of urban mobility. According to its creators, the vehicle makes no noise, does not make waves, and does not emit carbon dioxide.
