sQuba: Isaac Asimov and James Bond combined


This is so cool...Like something out of an SF book or a James Bond movie. A car that drives underwater! In fact, turns out the inventor was inspired by a car from the 1977 Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me.

I guess they should do a show called Bond Teck, like they did for Star Trek, about inventions that were influeneced by Star Trek

Kind of ironic that it's a convertible...

Lana, I thought the same thing. The article I read (in USA Today) said they made it a convertible for safety reasons, so the human driver could escape more easily if necessary.
