Daily Mail - Science & tech

Incredible footage has revealed the breathtaking stunts possible in the Seabreacher, a personal torpedo speed boat made out of old fighter jet parts. The vehicles - which come styled as sharks, killer whales or dolphins - can leap waves in a single bound and carry two passengers underwater. Prices for the watercraft, which are a combination of jet-ski, racing boat and submarine, vary from around $80,000 (£56,000) to top-of-the-range models costing upwards of $100,000 (£71,000). Seabreachers, created by water sports fanatics Rob Innes and Dan Piazza, based in Redding, California are unlike conventional watercraft that only operate on a two dimensional plane. The Seabreacher operates more like an aircraft with full three axis of control – pitch, roll, and yaw.
