'Breaking' is a watercraft by Belgian designer Jan Geilens. The concept boat features incredible maneuverability and can smoothly execute high speed turns and sudden stops.
Borrowing from the flying wing aircraft design, the Breaking water vehicle uses aerodynamic principles to increase hydrodynamic effect, reduce energy consumption and improve water sports performance when compared to more traditional watercraft. Its Hirth 307 engine is also borrowed from the aircraft industry.
Implications - The featured video goes into extensive detail about the boat and also features images and videos of it in action. The music is rather sad for such an exciting creation though! Jan Geilens is even featured within the video taking pictures with her aircraft-inspired boat.
