Snorkelling Takes On Another Dimension With An Underwater Jetpack

Snorkelling Takes On Another Dimension With An Underwater Jetpack

x2-Sports-Underwater-Jet-Pack_1

There are many things to explore on this planet, but most of them require some kind of physical effort. Like snorkelling, for instance. It’s all great fishing fun until you realize if you want to see anything at all, you will have to kick your finned feet around quite a bit. That’s an effort that can be avoided altogether if you strap the x2 Sport Underwater Jetpack to your back and wrists. Simply by pointing your fists in the direction you want to go, you’ll be able to travel up to 10kph (6mph) underwater for up to 60 minutes at a time. The propellers attach to your wrists, and are controlled through a handheld remote. The entire system weighs 5kp (11lbs) and will unfortunately set you back a hefty $2,000 as an early adopter. Yes, that does mean it’s a crowdfunding campaign that’s not even fully funded at the moment. And it does mean that you’ll have to wait until September 2016 until you get your own x2.
