Hammacher Schlemmer has just introduced the easiest submersible to operate in the world in the form of Undersea Aquahoverer. This incredible thing can hover without the need for adjusting ballast or managing drop weights. Requiring no more skill than driving a car, the sub’s fixed positive buoyancy combines with its six 400-rpm, 1.2-kilowatt ducted propellers—two front and four rear—to provide easy omnidirectional movement and stand-still hovering underwater next to reefs, wrecks, and underwater species.
Capable of exploring the twilight zone down to a depth of 400′, its streamlined composite pressure hull keeps two explorers safe in custom carbon fiber seats, with acrylic domes optimized for best underwater sightseeing. Intuitive and fly-by-wire controls (from either cockpit), two independent digitally monitored oxygen systems, and a closed-circuit internal (and VHF-to-surface) communications system provide submariners with a safe, flexible environment for investigating underwater anomalies. The entire craft is powered by a rechargeable 15kWH battery and includes comprehensive training.
