Through out a neoprene wing suit called “Oceanwings”, the analogy between aerial and aquatic flight illustrates this intense tri-dimensional feeling met by the underwater Humans.
Either it takes very little motion to propel oneself while wearing this thing, or it takes a lot, and it’s bad press to show it; all I see is the diver coasting through the water like some tub toy, and I remain skeptical.
as do i. seem too simple and unrealistic to keep propulsion that long.
ditto. The music didn’t and the thumbs up at the end didn’t help.
That was my impression, too. I couldn’t figure out how he was propelling himself, and I’m quite familiar with underwater mechanics. This looks like a squirrel suit, but those only work because you’re falling really fast.
One possibility is that he’s moving forward because he’s shed his buoyancy by emptying his lungs. Thus, he’s falling, but redirecting some of his downward motion into forward motion. I don’t see him wearing an air supply, though, and I suspect the wings would get in the way of wearing a BC jacket.
Looked more like a dead priest sinking to a watery grave. Suit looks neat, though it’s just not as impressive as shooting down the site of a mountain, skimming along a meter or less off the ground.
I did also enjoy the music, no nit picking there.
