Talk about the ‘ultimate DIY project’! The dudes behind the Eclectical Engineering YouTube channel built out an ‘underwater IRONMAN JETPACK’ that looks like it could be the most fun aquatic toy since the Jet-Ski was built. Seriously, this is infinitely cooler than those jetpacks that allow you to fly above the water while attached to a tube.
They dedicated this video to anyone out there who classifies themselves as ‘poor swimmers’. They claim they were tired of being called ‘the submarine’ because as shitty swimmers they spend more time underwater than above it. I grew up on an island in Florida just a stone’s throw from the beach, and really had no clue until now that people get shamed for being weak swimmers.
A lot of advanced DIY videos on YouTube tend to run upwards of 30 minutes, and I love this clip because it’s a brisk 8 minutes long. They go from being shitty swimmers to submarine Ironmen faster than it takes me to eat a triple-cheeseburger. Now I just need to get my hands on one of these to test out how legit it really is.
