Spymaster – London’s leading spy shop supplying surveillance, counter-surveillance and personal protection equipment showed its creativity when released a mock-up of a $2 million private submarine.
New toy for the rich people, dubbed “Orcascub” is a made-to-order submarine that can drop up to 2,000 feet into the briny depths with two passengers who can climb aboard the 4-ton, 22 foot-long submersible thanks to a pair of 360-degree domes that offer 80 hours of life support for each occupant.
Orcasub is built to Lloyd’s Register standards and it comes outfitted with sonar for collision avoidance, a digital long-range communications system and a 60,000 lumen Nuytco NewtSun ultra-LED lighting system to light up the surrounding water. It’s designed to be controlled by joystick and pedals and based on the principles of flight, that can swerve the vessel to any direction intended.
What you see above is just a miniature, but Spymaster is taking orders for the real, full-size McCoy. This mockup of Spymaster’s Orcasub was the highlight at Harrods‘ Technology Showcase 2.0 event. Actually, if you want to dive deeper, you can set a request for pricier models, with the most expensive version nabbing explorers a maximum depth of 6,000 feet for a cool $9.32 million.
