Rappler Talk: Designing Salamander, the world’s first amphibious tricycle
MANILA, Philippines – Most Filipinos have ridden a tricycle, but none quite like the Salamander. The Salamander is the tricycle reimagined. It can transform from traveling on land to traveling in water in a matter of seconds, which would allow it to serve as a rescue vehicle in the event of flooding.
The Salamander is the brainchild of Victor Llave and his team at H2O Technologies, an innovation and technology company. Designed over a period of more than 24 months, the Salamander, even in its earliest stages, is clearly a testament to the ingenuity of Filipino engineering.
In addition to making waves across the nation when news of it broke earlier this year, the Salamander has gotten attention from places as far flung as Nigeria. But the question remains: Can the tricycle that can go on both land and water also make it to the mass market? – Rappler.com
