Bike Across Water With the Velomobile

Inventor David Buchwaldek has created a kayak-like recumbent bike that can travel over roadways and bike directly into a body of water, becoming a tiny boat.

"Buchwaldek says he designed the HEPAV 1.1 to be like a kayak in that it can be transported by vehicle but ridden directly into the water. Video proves the viability of Buchwaldek's design, but it remains unclear how practical it is."

Video of the vehicle in action is available at Inhabitat.
