Money is being raised on Kickstarter for a groundbreaking new swimming device. Aqua Elliptica is an elliptical trainer capable of navigating through the water surface.
The product has been under development since 2013, although the idea came to the creators of the catamaran much earlier.
Right now Aqua Elliptica is just a prototype. It is much larger and heavier than the final version of the product, which will be put on the market with the help of crowdfunding resources. The ready-to-market boat will be made of Kevlar and carbon fiber. The boat is designed for speeds of up to 7 knots thanks to a specially designed propeller.
If the fund-raising campaign is successful, «floating elliptical trainer» will hit the shelves in July. It will cost about $2,000 to $2,500.
