The Marion Hyper-Sub is a submersible vehicle which also has the ability to run on the surface at great speed. Powerful, versatile and cost-efficient, the Hyper-Sub is billed as the world's first true general-purpose submarine. Operating as a self-sufficient powerboat on the surface, and as a submarine under the surface, the Hyper-Sub opens the door to undersea exploration in a way that has never been available before.

Implications - The design process and creating the actual Marion Hyper-Sub took 31 years to complete. The featured video shows this amazing creation in action both above the sea and under it. The makers of the Hyper-Sub state that it "will forever alter the mini-sub industry."
