According to the Mercury News, A strange new boat called the Proteus made its debut on the waters of San Fransisco bay.
The Proteus looks like an giant catamaran, using two inflatable pontoons to ride above the water. The boat is controlled from a cabin underneath a 100 foot arching structure.
The boat might look strange, but the odd design makes the Proteus maneuverable and fast. Investors and government agencies, such as the Coast Guard, are interested in potential uses for the new boat.
