Eryops / 3 wheel motorbike


The concept inspiration of Eryops comes from steam ship and amphibians. By combining hubless wheel with paddle wheels, the rear wheel of Eryops could be more efficient when its in the water. Eryops is a new generation of transportation devices that equipped with hydrodynamics chassis and the ability to adapt to the environment.

With the same transmission system, the paddle-equipped rear wheel could offer forward power even when Eryops is in the flood.

Furthermore, the safety air bag could be released when the water level is higher than Eryops itself ,and the paddle-equipped rear wheel becomes the propeller.
