This hot tub-shaped boat from French designer, Jonathan Mahieddine, apparently runs off of a giant solar-tree/sun-roof. Not exactly sure how.

What does the stored sunlight power? The televisions or the steering-wheel-less rudders? A closer look reveals another potential power source: two sets of pedals. Awfully big for a human-powered vessel but, a cool looking one, nevertheless.
