This futuristic-looking concept boat design named Volitan, or the "Flying Fish," was the result of collaboration between Dr. Hakan Gürsu and Sözüm Doğan of the Designnobis Studio. It uses a solid sails and array of panels next to its wings to harnesses both the power of the wind and the sun. Its wings are controlled by an onboard computer, which monitors light and wind course to make best use of the boat's performance by turning the wings correctly. Its built-in computer could manipulate and fold the boat wings whenever the weather condition gets violent.
