Personal Seabird Submarine
The recent crazy invention that our group would like to introduce is personal seabird submarine. First of all, instead of a bird, the appearance of this submarine is more like a shark, which interests us and makes us decide to choose this topic. As for function, seabird submarine is regarded as a personal vehicle. “If you would like to avoid the busy streets or have a stretch of water completely to yourself what better way than with a submarine”(Slaughter). The submarine uses a rechargeable battery pack which turns a series of electric motors, removing the necessary for fuel. The innovative tow system used in the submarine aims to offer the power of an internal combustion engine to an underwater vessel. With this advanced technique, hype submarine has capability to travel up to speed of 22 knots, which equates to 25mph or 40kh, both on top and under the water surface. In addition, the Seabird can be reduced to a depth of 150ft, 46 meters, and the manufacturer claims that it can be stayed in for 24-72 hours straight.
