A French inventor has designed the world’s first vertical ship. Why would the world ever need such a contraption, you ask? Well, the Jaques Rougerie SeaOrbiter will be used to conduct research on the link between global warming and the ocean. It will also provide an innovative view of underwater life.

The Jaques Rougerie SeaOrbiter measures a total of 167 feet high. In addition to a research area and an access deck for a maintenance area, the above sea level portion will also include an outdoor relaxation deck. The underwater level will be complete with a service deck for kitchen, storage and showers, living areas, labs and pressurized decks for divers.
