Volkswagen geek and all round nut Noah Mims thinks that even with our world about to be engulfed in the biblical amounts of water surging in from global warming melting the polar ice caps, it’s no excuse to fret and not be prepared. His new invention, the JetBath, ensures commuters of our waterlogged future safe transit over the flooded waterways, while enjoying a half decent, if not uncomfortable wash at nearly 50 mph. Using a jet propulsion system borrowed from an old jet ski, this tub actually reaches speeds of nearly 42 knots and does so running on vegetable oil! Making this the cleanest, greenest one man water vehicle in existence! It is fitted with a functional 1982 VW Joker steering wheel and claims to be equipped with a GPS tracking system as well 4 homing torpedoes! The torpedoes existence is justified as the JetBath has absolutely no braking system and thus the torpedoes are to destroy any obstacle/pedestrian/vehicle you might run into!
While I think the idea of bathing while driving on a jet-powered vehicle is utter, utter rubbish, kudos to Noah Mims for his brilliant design of the vehicle itself. This is the first high powered engine Iâve seen that runs on nothing but vegetable oil! This design has some serious potential and a great future ahead of it, if perhaps taken more seriously. A little polishing with the design and a few more tweaks with issues like braking, bathing and mass destruction and we could be looking at a revolution! Noah Mims is already discussing plans with three major speedboat companies to take this design further so there’s no doubt he has a bright future ahead of him!
