Before spending thousands on expensive scuba gear, check out the x2 Underwater Jetpack. It’s basically wearable propulsion system that revolutionizes the underwater experience by enabling the wearer to explore the ocean with the power and grace of a dolphin. The drive is essentially generated by the company’s patented Hydra thrusters, which propels you through the water faster than an Olympian swimmer, thus helping conserve precious oxygen you can use for longer dives.

“The underwater jetpack produces a thrust of almost 49 kg (108 lbs) and is capable of reaching a speed of up to 10 km/h (about 6 mph) for a duration of 60 minutes. What’s even better, the gizmo is 3D printed which makes it quite extremely robust. In terms of cost, the x2 Sports Underwater Jet Pack will set you back about $2,000 if you pledge for it on Indiegogo. As usual, the retail price is going to be much higher,” reports Auto Evolution.
