  1. sa mga proud pinoy dyan.. This was invented by filipino chinese.. (aka chinoy) .. The are filipino citizen with chinese blood.. Lamberto armada is a student in hope christian high school.. A school for chinoys

  2. I emailed them. It wont come cheap. It’s still on the development stage. It will cost P200k to P400k initially. Economies of scale will hopefully bring down the cost.

  3. Hi, may I know if this is patented?

  4. Maganda siya. Kelangan pa ng improvement para kasya ang 6 pag sa tubig na. Sana nga lang full support na ang gobyerno sa mga filipino inventions para umunlad naman ang technology sa pinas, hindi yung aasa na lang tyo sa technology ng ibang bansa lalo na sa japan.

  5. Well, for start it is a very good ingenuity. Let’s not forget the real problem is flooding and it’s rootcause.

  6. Magkano kaya to?

  7. panu pag 5 passengers on land tapos bumaha? lalangoy na lang po ba ung 2?

  9. So pwede na mag-franchise ng tricycle service sa Pasig river?

  10. PROUD po ako sa mga Pinoy na Inventor at Innovator katulad nito. Bakit ba kasi walang a la Kickstarter dito sa Pinas.
