• The human-powered engineering movement of the late 19th century might be mostly known for perfecting the bicycle. In 1896, R. L. Boulter cross-bred a canoe and a bike to come up with a bicycle boat, or boats, depending on how you looked at it. Perhaps it was a distant relation to paddleboats of the 20th century.
