Innovations in the field of transportation hold out the promise of land-based transportation becoming not only faster, but also cheaper and more efficient. We have already seen ideas for a futuristic hyperloop that can transport hotel rooms from city to city and the creation of a driverless and emission-free truck. Now, a new type of craft could revolutionize the maritime transport industry. In island nations such as Indonesia, the Philippines and the Caribbean, maritime transportation is the most common way to travel between islands, but it can be both time consuming and costly. To address this need, Singapore-based Wigetworks has designed the Airfish – a ship that hovers just above the water and can reach a top speed of 180 km/hour – more than twice the speed of a ferry.
