NEW DELHI: A Latvian landscape architect has developed a battery-powered tricycle with the ability to float on water.

Aigars Lauzis had spent four years traveling on a bicycle from London to Tokyo. This is when he realised his journey would have been much more comfortable had his bike been equipped with more than just two pedals.

Aigars went on to develop a tricycle equipped with two 250-watt battery hubs solar panels and an electric boat engine.

“So, it pretty much allows you to go continuously over land and water. It just gives you a unique experience because there’s no other such thing. Obviously, you can really be immersed in nature. You don’t need to rely on anything else,” Aigars Lauzis told news agency Reuters.

The Z-triton has plenty of room for two people and has a kitchen making it a perfect weekend escape.

“So, pre-charged, you can go for like 40 kilometers over land and then you can go for another 10 kilometers on water. Then you can find a place where you can charge it and just keep going. You could go around the world with this,” Aigars Lauzis added.
