So I was in the grocery store last night and decided to rent a couple of movies. Saw the above and thought "Hey, movie with diving scenes!, can't be too bad, right?" Wrong!

However, there was one interesting bit at the beginning. People were riding these cool scooters. Check it out..

CAYAGO LUXURY SEATOYS (http://www.seabob.com)

I think their base model starts at $10,000. Check out the Magnum model, working sonar and headlights?! James Bond needs one of these.

cheers

I could see some folks getting into some trouble with one of those if they are as fast as they show and the operator is on scuba. Not a lot of tech specs on them though, wonder what the max depth is.

Yep, according to google's calculator, you could shoot up from 130 feet at 4.97 mph = 437.36 feet per minute. Talk about possible DCS.

That was kind of my thought as well. Cool toy though!
