First amphibious coach in the world

Let me present to you the first bus in the world that can take its passengers to the waves.

Amphicoach

Amphicoach

Scotsman George Smith is the man behind this amazing bus called for the Amphicoach. The Amphicoach can take up to 50 passengers and it drives like a traditional bus until it reaches water, where its wheels retract into a hull, made from marine-grade aluminium, allowing it to sail in the water.

It´s powered by a  jet-drive unit and can reach speeds of up to eight knots (15 km/h). This “Modern Technological Wonder” has great preformance, safty and comfort both on land and water. On top of that it can operate day and night, in both fresh and salt water.

Twelve of these amazing vehicles are to be built each year. Amazing right?

Tetris block sculptures

Are you a big fan of Tetris?

If you happen to be wandering the streets of Sydney, you can find giant Tetris pieces floating over your head.

These Giant Tetris Pieces are part of an outdoor art exhibition called Live Lanes – By George! which runs through January 31, 2009.
