Soon, 500-foot ship that can cure seasickness with artificial waves

Washington, Oct. 6 : A Norwegian firm are developing a single-hull hotel ship that is capable of curing seasickness.

The 500-feet-ship is going to provide temporary housing to 800 people, who are working on off-shore oil rig and thanks to built-in tanks that have been crafted to counteract waves, living there is going to be almost like living at home, Mashable reported.

Johannes Eldoy, a project developer at Salt Ship Design, told Mashable that the ship ihas been designed primarily to have as little motion as possible on the gangway and these roll reduction tanks have proven to be very efficient.

The tanks are filled with water, and air valves on the roof of each blast the water around so as to create waves of various sizes, which helps balance out the natural ones so that the boat doesn't rock.
