    I just read about these on the way to wrok. They will be on display at the upcoming WIRED fest.

    These positively buoyant vessels use their forward momentum and the downward
    lift of their wings to literally fly below the water's surface. This radical departure
    from the typical method of sinking below the surface allow the Dolphins to achieve
    an unparrallelled level of freestyle performance.The idea of underwater flight was
    first invented by Tom Rowe of Tarco Research who developed the concept with his
    amazing "Bionic-Dolphin."

    Which can be summarized as "being able to poke half-way out of the water".

    The coolest part about this thing is, I believe, one of it's drawbacks. It's air-fed, so you literally have to mimic a dolphin and come up for air between dives.
