The moment you have been waiting for…

The HydroView Sport has been publicly announced!!!

We are thrilled to get the word out! This vehicle is not only fun and entertaining, but it allows people to learn more about the underwater world, whether it’s studying marine life or exploring a sunken ship!

The excitement cannot be contained!

Enjoy the PR, everyone!

 

 

A new rescue plan has been receiving impressive results in California.

A robotic lifeguard named Emily can speed across the water at 40 miles per hour and float up to 6 people at a time. There has only been practice runs, but hopefully every beach carries one.

The greatest part about Emily is that she can save lives six times faster than a lifeguard can.

It’s understandable that technology makes life easier, but who would have thought that robots would be taking over jobs such as a lifeguard position!?

Check out the link to watch the video from Huffington Post!

Have a great day, everyone.

 

A submarine bar has been constructed in the frigid waters of Sweden.

…interested yet?

Arthur Guinness signed a lease for a brewery in Dublin, Ireland. To pay homage, Jump Studios artfully turned a sub into a modern, LED filled bar.  It was also part of the Guinness Sea Experience competition.

Now, while drinking, guests get to enjoy views of the underwater world!

Guinness and Jump Studios have teamed up to turn a submarine into an underwater bar

How cool!!!

 

 

 

The HydroView had a photo shoot yesterday in the beautiful Newport, Rhode Island! The day couldn’t have been more perfect with its summer atmosphere and great vibe.

Here, the vehicle can’t wait to dive under and explore the underwater world!

Stay tuned for more images and videos!

What will you view?

 

 

Solar power has been providing homes and cell phones with electricity,  but what about on the water?

Raphaël Domjan has just completed a 19 month journey (37,286 miles) around the world on his solar powered boat!!!  Don’t worry, batteries were packed just in case!

Domjan and his crew successfully made the record-breaking adventure and had only one fear in mind…pirates!!!

According to the article, “…the point of the expedition was to prove that solar power is “for today and not tomorrow,” and that it’s possible to be “optimistic” about the future of energy, despite gloom about its cost, and the worsening threat of climate change.”

Have a great day!

 

Here is a safety checklist from Discover Boating to use before you hit the water on another great adventure!

From distress signals to checking the weather, everything you need to know is here.

It’s also important to check under your boat, –in hopes that you catch any problems with your anchor, hull or props before leaving your dock or marina. Somewhere on this list, pencil in the AquaLens, because it’s a great safety tool!

Have a great day, everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

A rare lobster has been found at Jasper White’s Summer Shack restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Its coloring resembles a calico pattern, defined by orange and yellow markings.

	In this photo provided by the New England Aquarium in Boston, Wednesday, May 9, 2012, shows a rare calico lobster that could be a 1-in-30 million, according to experts. It was caught off Winterport, Maine, and was discovered by Jasper White’s Summer Shack and isbeing held at the New England Aquarium for the Biomes Marine Biology Center, a science center in Rhode Island. The lobster is dark with bright orange and yellow spots. (AP Photo/New England Aquarium, Tony LaCasse)

Amazingly, 1-in-30 million lobsters turn out looking like this guy, whose name is apparently Calvin. His destination is set for Rhode Island at the Biomes Marine Biology Center.

It really makes you think what other rare creatures are living beneath the waves.

Enjoy your day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Radisson Hotel in Berlin, Germany houses the largest Aquarium in the world! This breathtaking structure is filled with 1 million liters of seawater and  contains 1500 fish of 97 different species.

Not only is it amazing to look at, but you can take an elevator through the middle of the aquarium to the top viewing deck. How cool!

The HydroView would be the perfect vehicle for cruising around this tank! Whether it was for maintenance or having the guests take it for a drive. What do you think, AquaDom?


Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

We’re back from the Virgin Islands with some new footage from the AquaLens and our first showing of HydroView footage!

Watch as they soar through the underwater world in the clearest waters yet, capturing fish and even a ship wreck!

Have a great day, everyone.

In a recent article posted by National Geographic, as climate temperatures warm up,  a number of negative outcomes occur to our environment.

Temperature changes could bring forth coral bleaching and eventually death, krill could die off and harm the food chain effecting seals and penguins, and a higher sea level could harm and flood coastal environments.

On top of these things, storms are becoming more frequent, resulting in hurricanes and cyclones and warmer temperatures are bringing forth marine diseases.

The solution to these horrible outcomes?  To get rid of greenhouse gases, which isn’t an easy task.

Let’s hope a simpler solution can present itself.
