Deep Flight Submersibles (http://www.deepflight.com/)I skimmed a lot of this. I couldn't find any prices listed. It has been my experience that if the price isn't listed up front, I probably can't afford it.:smiley36:

There was a show on Discovery (or History) channel about this recently. Looked pretty cool.

I don't quite get the guy's point really....he's comparing moving through the water to flight...but, I don't really see it as anything ground breaking. So it has no buoyancy tanks....so what. It's kind of like the difference between a hot air balloon and a fighter jet. Is he saying that this thing is faster and more agile?

And his vehicle...well, maybe fish don't need to sit in chairs, but, humans aren't fish. Our bodies are not designed to function in water. His machine looks really uncomfortable. How does lying prone in a tightly enclosed box make it a better experience?

I'm really suprised this was featured at TED.

As I think about some of your comments I am reminded of another product that someone posted up on the forum that consited of two small motors and props one on each outer calf and canister battery packs all used with SCUBA.
Now that really looked like flying!
