    This is Montegrotto Terme, Italy's recently completed 'Y-40' (aka 'The Deep Joy', which I've actually been called before), the new world's deepest swimming pool (previously: this one). The pool's central well reaches a depth of 40-meters (~131-feet) and is used for deep-sea di... / Continue →

    Cool helmet, Jacques Cousteau. This is a video demonstrating what happens when you crack an egg underwater (and deep enough for the water pressure to have an effect). I actually posted a better version of the experiment back in 2012, but maybe you weren't reading then. Hell,... / Continue →

    This is a line of wetsuits that have been designed to confuse a shark's vision so they won't take a bite out of you. The first two are designed to make a diver 'invisible' to sharks in the water, while the third was designed to make you look like an old-timey prison inmate and... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to watch a diver knock over a stack of rocks with an air bubble ring? Well you are IN LUCK, because that's exactly what this is. Unfortunately, when reached for comment Ariel was devastated to find out someone knocked over her art installation. Now might not be th... / Continue →

    This is a video from a group of divers off Kona, Hawaii on a manta ray watching expedition when a bottlenose dolphin with a fishing line in its mouth and wrapped around a pectoral fin comes to ask for help. Thankfully, one of the divers is able to successfully remove the line.... / Continue →

    These wetsuits from Roddenberry.com are designed to look like the uniforms from the original Star Trek series. They range in price from $435-$470, depending on the thickness of material (3mm - 7mm) you choose and you'd have to be an idiot to go surfing in a red one. Sharks yo... / Continue →

    First of all, a space station of the ocean isn't classified as a space station, it's a Sea Lab. 2021? *high five* And you tell the captain to stay the hell away from me with that golf cart of his! Called the SeaOrbiter, the huge 51m (167ft) structure is set to be the world'... / Continue →

    Although it might as well be. The San Alfonso del Mar is a 1,013 meter, 19-acre pool on the central coast of Chile. It holds 66 million gallons of filtered sea-water and even has a 115-foot deep end (making it even deeper than yesterday's pool). Although I think we can all a... / Continue →

    The best I can tell the WASP Knife has nothing to do with white Protestants. Nope, it has to do with stabbing something and then releasing 24g of compressed gas into the wound and exploding their organs (VIDEO demo after the jump). Since World War II, the military has seen mu... / Continue →

    Some people are happy being cremated and spending eternity in an urn on the fireplace mantel that the grandkids get all freaked out about. Others are happy with a traditional burial 6 feet under -- but some, some take it a step further and want to rest 45 feet under. Enter th... / Continue →

    The Poseidon Mk IV Discovery is a dive tank that recycles oxygen, so you can stay underwater long enough to fall in love with a mermaid and produce mutant children. Awesome, I know. Just don't go settling for a manatee like I did. The system works through the use of C02 scru... / Continue →

    Many of you may remember the Rinspeed sQuba car posted a few months ago. It's a zero emission vehicle that runs off a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and can dive underwater. All we had back then were a couple of concept art pics, but now there's a video! Sure it's a ridicu... / Continue →

    Tired of shark fighting with no tunes? The iS2 brings the dream to life, allowing users to dive to unheard of depths (almost to the bottom of the deep end, 10 ft.) while your iPod shuffle remains safe and dry. The thing doesn't come with waterproof earphones though, so you're... / Continue →
