    DESIGN DISTINCTION AQUATICUS
    Inspired by Jacques Cousteau's dream that man would one day live in harmony with fish, this diving scooter, created by San Francisco designer Geffrey Petrizzi, features an artificial gill that extracts oxygen from the water. The gill not only fuels the scooter's power source, but also provides oxygen to the diver, who can use Aquaticus to supplement a dive. Barrett was impressed with the product's well-resolved inventiveness and fantasy element.



    I thought this was pretty cool. Especially the part about the artificial gill that extracts oxygen from water. This has military written all over it.

    Link has a picture...I couldn't get it to open a new window and I'm too lazy to put it on an image hosting site.

    Pretty dope. But I never go in the ocean, EVER. I'm scared shitless of Sharks. Lifeless black eyes that don't seem to be looking at anything at all. 'till they take a bite out of your ass and their eyes roll over white......FUCK THAT! Being eaten alive would suck major ass .

    Can't say that I'm afraid of sharks. Out of sight out of mind I guess. I did get stung by a bunch of jellyfish. I got this real nauceous feeling and felt like I was paralyzed. Freaked me out fo sure.

    yep... Jaques converted.
    That man discovered so much about the world.
    I'd really love to hear his take on Creationism/Evolution.

    (p.s. I was Jaques for Halloween last year)
