RoboSea has created a new underwater propulsion system which takes the form of the aptly named Seaflyer underwater scooter. Capable of providing up to 60 minutes of propulsion on a single charge the unique propulsion system is capable of providing up to 26lbs of thrust and will function to a depth of 45m or 147ft.
Equipped with rechargeable batteries the system can easily be recharged for a battery swapped out when required. Earlybird pledges are no available via the Indiegogo crowdfunding website starting from $369 offering a massive 47 percent saving off the recommended retail price. Extra batteries are also available priced at $119.
If all goes well and the crowdfunding campaign is successful deliveries are expected to start shipping during November 2018. The Seaflyer underwater scooter has two speed settings offering either 2.3 or 4.1 mph and the complete system will automatically float to the surface if needed thanks to its ultra lightweight design which only weighs 8.8lbs.
“Drone technology plus seacraft-inspired design. This sleek, full-featured, underwater scooter pulls you along with ease in both any ocean, lake or pool. Snorkel with turtles, scuba with dolphins, or simply chase your friends in the pool. SeaFlyer is a feat of human engineering. Impeccable design, powerful motors, quiet propulsion system.
