Underwater Couch Potatoes

Posted: January 25, 2007 in Consumerism, Tacky

I came across this product recently, called the Scuba-Doo (very little info at that link):

Scubadoo

It’s a motorized scuba bike for underwater couch potatoes who can’t even be bothered to kick and swim. I’m modestly intrigued by the way it appears to have addressed the breathing problem, assuming of course that the pilot (?) keeps the thing upright, by creating an air pocket and viewing port. Oh, and there’s the little problem of depth, which is something scubists have to understand very well to avoid things like collapsed lungs or the bends.

I can well imagine this product being sold at tourist destinations in countries such as Mexico and Thailand, where life is pretty damn cheap, and rented to numbskulls who don’t recognize what a truly dangerous environment being underwater is. Product liability lawsuit in the making?
