The Nereus is basically a podracer-inspired “water craft that achieves relatively high speeds on water and underwater — user can choose between swimming and diving as they wish.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

The handlebars are attached with strings to the kite, employing the same principles used in kite-surfing. To dive, you only have to push down, and the Nereus will dive for a few seconds before emerging again.
