Innerspace Bionic Dolphin

Recommended Posts

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.
