Many of us feel the call of the deep, but few of us are willing to face the cold, wet and occasionally shark-infested realities of scuba diving. That's why we need Spyfish, a gadget for divers who aren't quite ready to take the plunge. Spyfish is a battery-powered minisubmarine tricked out with cameras and floodlights and operated by wireless remote control. It trails a slender cable behind it that transmits whatever it sees back to a monitor topside, so you can rummage through Davy Jones' locker while sunning yourself on deck and sipping a mai tai. The product of years of research and testing, Spyfish is elegant and streamlined but rugged enough to withstand depths of 150 m and conditions too cold or dangerous for a human diver.
Availability: Late in 2003; around $14,900
