20 Atypical Undersea Explorers

From Underwater Aircrafts to Flying Submarines

— August 31, 2012 — Autos
Don't be surprised if you find yourself humming the tune to 'Under the Sea' while reading through all of these atypical undersea explorers. These submersibles differ from what would be considered normal, at least in submarine terms, in almost every way possible. Some of them are designed to be powered by foot while others feature ultra-luxurious amenities. A few of these atypical undersea explorers are even shaped like sea creatures.

As technology advances, the idea of the personal submarine becomes less of a joke and more of a possibility. If you want to see some of the most awesome concept and real-world subs out now, then pop in the soundtrack to 'The Little Mermaid' and check out all of these atypical undersea explorers.
