An underwater scooter strong enough to propel up to four people underwater is to be crowdfunded by China-based Shenzhen Hoverstar Flight Technology Co.
The company plans to launch a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for the Aquajet Dive H2 later this month.
The spec includes an 800-Watt motor which is reportedly strong enough to propel up to four people underwater and up to 100 minutes of battery life. It is depth-rated to 60 feet/18 meters, has a variable, three-speed control with a maximum speed of 9km/5.6 miles per hour and a charging time of four to six hours.
The “on” button is embedded in the left wing, which needs to be continually pressed for it to safely stay powered. The right-hand-side switch controls speed. To dive, push your hands down, and to come back to the surface just pull your hands up.
The crowdfunding campaign will begin in late December on Indiegogo, with a starting price of US759/~645 Euros.
