Hipsters may have to get wet to try out the hot new food truck - it's floating in the middle of a lagoon, the sun reported.
Aqua Pod, which launched Wednesday in Dubai's lagoons, is described as the world’s first sustainable floating drive-thru.
Serving up "creative burgers", the watery eatery will either deliver food by jet ski to the customer's boat, or can accept orders directly from smaller watercraft.
While it will initially only serve burgers, the owners are aiming to start branching out into pizzas and desserts if the idea proves popular.
The first Aqua Pod will officially open on Friday, and while it will initially be situated in Jumeirah, it will cover areas like Al Sufouh and Kite Beach.
Running on electrical propulsion, the pod also has a built- in system enabling it to collect any waste wrappers or trash from the sea.
The "floating drive-through" concept is the brainchild of award-winning architect Ahmed Youssef, 27, founder of Aquatic Architects Design Studio (“AADS”).
The first outlet, named “Salt Bay”, was created in collaboration with entrepreneur Koussei Kurbaj, and is planned to be the first of many creations that Aqua Pod developers look to float across the UAE.
Ahmed said: “In Dubai, we are almost always surrounded by water; Emiratis and residents alike spend significant amount of time at sea, so we saw an untapped opportunity to bring an innovative concept to the UAE."
The floating drive-thru is just one of the latest futuristic project planned for the desert city.
There are also plans for a new rotating skyscraper - so no one gets a rubbish view.
The Dynamic Hotel, scheduled to be built in 2020, will be able to rotate 360 degrees so the view inside changes endlessly.
Numerous apartments will be built on separate floors, which can each rotate independently using voice-activated technology.
