Like something out of a Sean Connery-era James Bond movie, Scubalec is an exciting new arm-mounted personal jet drive, designed to propel intrepid users through the water.
“People go snorkeling because it’s a great way to explore the underwater world,” creator Un-Yong Park said in an interview. “For those people who love snorkeling, we’ve created a handy device to bring even more fun to the underwater experience. Simply put Scubalec on your arm and it pulls you just in the direction you point, easy and simple.”
The Scubalec is comprised of two small jet drives combined with a 7.500 mA/h lithium-ion battery. When fully charged, it will provide 10-12 minutes’ worth of continuous propulsion.
Park describes the experience of using the Scubalec as being “like a cyclist with a tailwind on their back.” And that’s with just one. Imagine what having one on each arm would be like!
