"Sea Bubbles" Water taxis to be tested next Spring in Paris

Paris to test ‘flying water taxis’ that will surf 2ft above Paris river
Quote:
Prototypes of the Sea Bubble will be tested in Paris in the spring
- The solar-powered pods will float two feet above the water and reach 30km per hour, say designers
- Inventor Alain Thébault said he hopes Sea Bubbles will be available to order on apps like Uber
- Each journey in the taxis will cost less than £10, he said
Futuristic 'flying' taxis could soon be ferrying passengers along the Seine in Paris - and London and Geneva could be next.
Tests of the vessels, named the Sea Bubble, will be carried out in the French capital next year, it has been announced.
Yachtsman Alain Thébault, who invented the solar-powered shuttles along with Swedish windsurfer Anders Bringdal, said the unusual vehicles will be able to float two feet above the water, and reach speeds of 30km per hour.

Will they really float above the waters of the Seine river like shown on that picture? Because if they do, that's one of the most impressive things I've ever seen. Congratulations for the innovative design!
Edit: Now I've read that they will float two feet above the water. Impressive!

Huge like. I love the tower. When I was saying that La Defense looked somehow average before, I wanted to say that it really needs something truly remarkable by contemporary standards. This proposal is truly remarkable.
How many floors does the proposal have?

What happened with the height limits at La Défense (due to the issues with air traffic)? Have things changed?

I saw this one long time ago. I think this is a vision, not a proposal.

I like it much much better than Hermitage Plaza, even if it's only a concept.

square meter price record in Paris

CHANEL acquired the walls of his 600 sqm store situated 51 avenue Montaigne for 140 millions euros = 230.000 euros the square meter.

I should probably post this here too:

If you can believe it, there is a group of ****wits organized in a resistance group against the project, which they deem to be too costly, useless, and detrimental to RER B users.

Haha, maybe it's because I was writing from the phone (although I don't have autocorrect). It is, of course, twenty minutes.

Which is actually quite disappointing, as Paris with a new link should have promoted a nextgen transport IMHO (Hyperloop or so on?)

Hyperloop has no utility for short transportation with close stations such as in urban area. It must accelerate then decelerate, and it wouldn't really have the time to reach its cruise speed before having to stop brutally, because of the next station. Besides, its cost would probably be largely superior, for no gain in capacity.
