For Just £1.5 Million You Can Have Your Own Underwater Plane

By Eric Limer on at

It's one thing to have your own submarine. It's another to have your own submarine that's an awesome jet. And for just £1.5 million that dream can come true with Spymaster's custom Orcasub.

The 22ft-long, 4-tonne monster is designed to descend to 1,000 feet, and on its way down, it flies through the water like a plane. Controlled with pedals and a joystick that control thrust, lift, and drag, the Orcasub can dive, roll, and bank just like a fighter jet, except in the water instead of the air. The Orcasub boasts 80 hours of life support and a 60,000 lumen lighting system. And, if you've really got cash to blow, you can max out that depth to 6,000 feet for a mere £5 million extra.

Should some crazy millionaire decide this is the purchase for him or her, Spymaster will provide the undersea pilots-to-be with five days of training. What a deal! But you better start saving up now; that initial investment is a zinger. [Pocket-Lint via Engadget]
