A Chinese man has taken his love for deep sea exploration and added his own twist of penny-pinching practicality to it. Sinking just under $5,000 and two years of time into the project, Tao Xiangli has built a personal homemade submarine which he uses in aquatic areas near Beijing.

Xiangli's creation is driven by electric motors and propellers and comes fully equipped with a periscope and a depth control tank. Innovative and recession-inspired, the homemade submarine proves the only thing that separates nerdy obsessions and avant-garde creations is a little bit of love, work and time.
