Given his love for the beetle, I'm sure that the late great Bob Pease would have had a comment on this. Probably saying something like, "yes, interesting but can you double-clutch it?!" :-) http://electronicdesign.com/article/articles/what-s-all-this-double-clutching-stuff-anyhow-6137

A wonderful idea - with a clever historical twist. When the VW Beetle first came out, it was recognized as a car that could float. Now that distant memory has been turned upsidedown: a VW Beetle that can intentionally sink but keep on running.

I wonder if that model can be come a hit for driving on sand, like in beaches to replace the tricycle type vehicles that I see on resorts. I would a great way to enjoy the beach!

The idea is new and the video is worth seeing to have an idea of driving a car on the surface of the ocean.Sub titles like depth of the sea,temperature,speed of the car will give more attraction.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
