Seems like I’m always covering the mini-subs here on this site, and this is the latest, the Seabreacher X.
It is essentially a submarine that is in the shape of a shark. If I were in the market to by a water submersible vehicle, then having it in the shape of a fish could be a selling point.
You should watch the video after the jump, especially to see the way that it can surface and dive like a real shark. It is definitely better effects than the original Jaws.
Speaking of Jaws, the exhaust system of the Seabreacher X is such that when the shark-shaped submarine jumps after the water, it has a throaty growl. I’m pretty sure that real sharks don’t do this roaring, but it I guess it does create a sense of drama. Heck, if I was on the beach and I saw the Seabreacher X skimming along the waters, I would completely Roy Scheider the whole swimming area. Just watch Jaws if you don’t get that reference.
The boat has a 260hp supercharged engine, which can fly across the surface of the water at 50 miles per hour and underwater at 25 miles an hour. I wouldn’t mind getting in this shark-mobile and having some fun.
