Amphibious vehicles aren’t totally unimaginable in the RV industry â€” who
can forget the luxurious Terra Wind, a $1.2 million Class A
land-and-water cruiser introduced by Cool Amphibious Manufacturers LLC
back in 2003?
However, the Harmony, by Chinese designer Weili Fend, is a bit further
along the evolutionary scale. The RV is powered by an environmentally
friendly energy power system â€” mainly, a hydrogen battery with four
in-wheel motors, but there’s also a solar paddle that can be used as a
sail that doubles as a solar-energy harvesting system.
Lakeside, a jet drive installed toward the rear of the vehicle,
provides propulsion. The Harmony is designed for four, with customary RV
accouterments and entertainment facilities.
Its main drawback, however, is that it hasn’t been built yet â€” the
extraordinary vehicle was Fend’s entry to the Green Life design
competition during iida 2009, the Incheon International Design Awards
held at Incheon Metropolitan City, Korea.
