Although the actual boat, known as "Steam Rowboat II", is still in the development phase, the proof-of-concept mechanism (AKA Steam Rowboat I) seems to work very well! Artist/inventor I-Wei Huang has also built many other steam powered devices, which are described on his website Crabfu.com. Unfortunately, we don't know when the rowboat will be finished, since, in Huang's own words, "it just seem to be too much headache, too many potential problems, sinking a nice engine being my number one concern :)" Hopefully he changes his mind. I'd like to see this thing in action!
