Never mind the problems with it (and they are myriad), how cool would it be if the Ro-Ro of the future looked like this? Norwegian engineer Terje Lade says his Wind Ship (did he mean “Wing Ship”?) could be an economic reality sooner than you think; 3 or 4 years until the first one splashes.  ”It will give you a positive pull in the direction of the ship more than fifty percent of the time, as an average, without doing anything,” he said. “You don’t have to think about it. It’s so simple.”

Simple until the first storm, apparently.  Discuss here.  There’s even some video.
