After Boeing’s flying taxis last month, Seabubbles are demonstrating their flying boats in Miami

SeaBubbles, a French start-up that we already introduced in our Fall/Winter 2018/2019 IMPULSE book (Volume 1), demonstrated this weekend on Miami beaches, one of its 5 flying boat prototypes. The founders of the start-up, designed SeaBubbles as a way for cities to reduce traffic congestion and help the environment by taking advantage of waterways. These electric engines, inspired by both the nautical and aviation industries, use intelligent softwares to lift the boat’s hull out of the water. This innovative system limits energy consumption while allowing navigation on more difficult waters with reduced drag, as well as maintaining passenger comfort.

To accompany this good news, Fleury Michon is developing with the buzzman agency, a new advertising campaign with the slogan “Food preservatives’ rightful place is in a museum”, “Ready-made meals to do nothing, not even read the label”.
