The AquaBeyond 'SubCruiser' underwater scooter has been created by the Hong Kong-based company as a solution for avid aquatic enthusiasts to keep them supported when spending extended periods of time in the water.
The system works by being worn on the body like a backpack and will go to work providing effective propulsion under the surface at depths as low as 300 meters. The unit features two battery packs that will offer up to 40 minute of use per charge and will provide a combined thrust of 22 pounds, which translates to about 5mph of speed. The unit utilizes a stepless controller that will smoothly increase or decrease the speed to avoid abrupt propulsion changes.
The AquaBeyond 'SubCruiser' underwater scooter is presently available as part of a Kickstarter campaign at an introductory price point of $299 with a future retail cost of $600.
