If you like the Morgan Three Wheeler but have the need to traverse expanses of open water on your daily commute, Gibbs Technologies has just the thing for you. According to Visor Down, Gibbs has secured patents for a new amphibious trike. Gibbs Technologies has made a name for itself producing vehicles that equally at home on land and water, and it looks like this new creation works much like the other hardware in the company's stable.

The trike's engine sends power to its single rear wheel on land, but when things get aquatic, the power is diverted to a pair of water jets. Like Gibbs's amphibious ATV, the three-wheeler's front wheels fold up and away once the vehicle takes to the water, creating a WaveRunner-style contraption. Sounds like a cool idea to us.

      I never understood people wanting products like this, It might go in the water like a jet ski and it it might go on land like a ATV but i will guarantee you that it sucks at both. For the money it will cost i bet you could buy a jet ski and a ATV and have two machines that are great at each task.


      in theory something like this is great, in actuality...not so much

      While your making a transformer, make it a snow mobile too and swap out the rear tire for some tracks and the front tires for runners.

      I'd want to buy one! Such a awesome idea very curious as to why it has not been done yet.

        I'd say it hasn't been done yet because it will probably be sub-par as both a trike and a jetski. Why would you want two half-assed recreational vehicles?

      I'd love to try it out but can't imagine ever buying one...

      Seems like the wide stance might make it hard to lean in the water.
