In my opinion one of main factors that influence the development of a society is  they way it uses technology. Under the current efforts of shifting the impact that our societies have on our planet, scientifics, engineers  and designers have joined forces in the development of hybrid technology. The revolutionary design and the fuel efficiency of this ship marks the  introduction of hybrid technology in the transportation by ocean. Hopefuly the returns on fuel cost savings will inspire the production in large scale of means of transportation that use Eco friendly technology.

This is very interesting. I know we are moving into the hybrid industry for vehicle manufacturing and it is great to find out about similar technological advances in other areas. If this works well i can imagine hybrid airplanes would follow.

Since I have done my case study on Innovative Environmental Technology, I think this a great idea! I love how the cruise ships are evolving in a positive way for our environment.
