This Hydrodome BOB Breathing Observation Bubble is basically an underwater scooter type with a helmet that allows the rider to breathe while underwater. Isn’t that what you have been looking for? Yup, it will make scuba diving much easier, and of course, safer.

I like the fact is makes you look like your on the set for 70’s Cousteau film or Bond film. Just what I need to carry out my evil plans to take over the world!  Bwahahahahahaha

He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. That seems like it sort of defeats the point of scuba diving to me. I mean, I can look like a dork riding a scooter on land, if that’s what I want to do.

  2. HydroBOB is meant to offer an easy introduction to diving. Without wearing the cumbersome dive equipment you can cruse around and enjoying the reef. Then, learn to dive.
    We have built 5 knot versions but the dive instructor could not keep up. Also, of you go too fast you don’ see the fish!
