The HydroBOB Underwater Scooter...

Introducing the HydoBOB [Breathing Observation Bubble]. It's basically a moped for underwater... Doesn't look very graceful or fast enough to out swim a shark, but if you don't know how to swim... this handy little device might get you in the water. As of now you can rent one for $25 per hour down in Ft. Lauderdale, FL...
The HydroBOB is consisted of three parts: the scooter, a viewing bubble that has a 180 degree view, and an oxygen tank. The rider sits on the seat and holds onto the handlebars, where triggers can be used to control the thrust. The underwater scooter is connected to a support structure above the surface of the water. Considering the large tether that connects the scooter and the support structure above, the HydroBOB probably can’t go very far. the video below to see it in action.
