If you’ve ever wished you had an Aquaman set of lungs so that you could easily explore the depths of the ocean, you’re not alone. Although increasing your lung capacity isn’t in the cards right now, a company by the name of Supermarinovation has set out to help you reach lower depths quicker with the Underwater Jetpack.

These personal propulsion devices are intended to allow swimmers and snorkelers to go deeper and farther without a full SCUBA system. It’s a backpack module that provides power to a pair of forearm-mounted hydra thrusters that wearers can activate to achieve speeds of over 6 mph. The jetpack uses a 24,000 mAh Li-ion battery to power the thrusters, providing 15 minutes of constant full power per charge. The project is currently being crowdfunded on IndieGoGo, with an early bird price of $2,000. [Purchase]
