Chinese factory worker Zhang Wuyi may have been laid off from his job at a textile factory in Wuhan but he is certainly not hurting for work. He has been producing fully-functioning mini-submarines. Furthermore, these subs are for sale. This has provided Zhang Wuyi and his team a tidy income that allows them to continue their work.

The submarines may not be up to exploring the open oceans, but they are perfect for a lake or river with a slow current. It is in environmentss such as these that Zhang Wuyi and his team test out their creations.

His team is comprised of ten people: Zhang Wuyi himself, a few engineers and workers. The resourcefulness of this crew is admirable.  Stats for Mini-Sub Mavericks Trending: Older & Chilly
