Speaking to UK tabloid The Daily Mail, Rousson said that yacht owners might enjoy the delights of a ‘pocket submarine’. “If it doesn’t take off,” he said, “I’ll race it.” The 40-year old designer has already said he plans to enter it in the 2011 International submarine race in the United States. ‘I’ve been up in the air by pedaling, underwater with my bike and now underwater with a submarine,’ Rousson said.
While this writer thinks the submarine is a fantastic invention for allowing emission-free underwater exploration, it is unfortunately yet another ‘boy’s toy’ for the rich and famous. It looks like I’m going to have to start saving my pennies… and move closer to the coast.
