With the traffic going crazy and everyone concentrating on the high skies, two University of Seoul student designers Sungchul Yang and Woonghee Han are planning on exploiting the other mode-water. Now I know boats have been around for centuries, but what these boys are trying to provide is a novel way of individual transport. The Aqua submersible watercraft is a one-person craft that is capable of skimming the waters as well as plunging deep beneath. Sporting a dolphin like shape, this design won the 2008 Silver Idea Design Award. The design theoretically is a consequence of apt study pertaining to buoyancy control, oxygen supply and driver protection from the unrelenting water pressure.
