Underwater Wheelchair

This amazing photo was taken from the BBC News website and shows artist Sue Austin preparing to show off a prototype self-propelled underwater wheelchair to the public.  I think it’s absolutely incredible and I take my hat off to the dive experts and academics who dreamt up this design.  One can only hope it maybe becomes available and affordable to those less able bodied individuals who want to experience the wonders of your seas.  However, Sue will have to make do with a Weymouth swimming pool to start with!

Good luck and we hope the rust doesn’t get too bad!
