Floating Gym In Paris Is Fuelled By Human Energy


The human mind always craves for something new and this in turn propels us to come up with innovative and creative solutions. A floating gym powered by human energy was recently unveiled by Italian architects Carlo Ratti Associati.

The 20-meter-long Paris Navigating Gym will meander down the Seine River offering beautiful sights of the city. It features bikes and cross trainers and can hold up to 45 people. The exercise machines are linked to an inverter, which convert the pedal power into electricity.

The transparent glass bubble design was fashioned after the ferry boats used to carrying tourists. This gym aims to portray how human energy has the potential to power vehicles in the future. It’s interesting to see how energy generated by a workout at the gym can help propel the boat.
