Paris to welcome futuristic ‘gym’ cruise

Gym boatRiver Seine in Paris is likely to witness a brand new concept of futuristic ‘gym-boat’ cruise.

The idea, known as the Paris Navigating Gym, seeks to present a unique concept of working it out at the gym while indulging in some of the most breathtaking views of nature. Carlo Ratti Associati, an Italian firm is credited with the designing of this impressive concept.

The fitness center would be the main feature on this 65 feet-long vessel, equipped with glass walls.

This would let passengers absorb in the different sights of the city even while they are on board the cruise ship. It would be harnessing the energy form the workouts of its travellers to glide the boat along the river.

There would be cross trainers and spinning bikes on board the boat and it would accommodate up to 45 people at a time.

Cruse travellers would be able to note the amount of energy sourced from their hard work at the portable gym alongside the data about eh environmental condition in real-time through augmented reality screens.

If it gets the go-ahead, this concept of futuristic cruise is likely to become a reality within the next 18 months.

Carlo Ratti asserted that it is truly fascinating to observe how the energy generated by a gym workout can actually go a long way in propelling a boat. It offers a tangible experience of what can be done with the idea of electric power.

Carol’s form had collaborated with a non-profit organization that is a New York-based architecture group Terraform ONE with regard to the plans.

The design is a rich tribute to the conventional ferry boats – Bateaux Mouches that had transported tourists up and down the River Seine ever since the early part of the 20th century.

The gym boat is a completely fresh concept.

But, associated at the Italian form are quite keen to explore its magic not just in Paris but also beyond. http://www.travelandtourworld.com/
