Yes, you can be a secret agent

Think about how often you strap yourself into your car. Odds are it’s every day. Now think about traveling to work underwater, only this time, in a submarine.

James Bond movie engineer Graham Hawks has now made this possible.

Hawks has designed a personal submarine called DeepFlight Dragon. Your head would be surrounded by a transparent canopy which would give you a 360-degree view of everything around you.

Sophomore Zack Berger said, “I would love to do this. I just can’t believe that now it’s possible to go on your own underwater adventures.”

With your left hand you can tell the 16-foot sub to dive deeper or surface. Using the joystick with your right hand, you steer in any direction.

With this technology you can go anywhere you want. You can bring your fantasies to life by going anywhere you want. Ancient ruins, shipwrecks, sea creatures, you name it.

Junior Jacob Grabowski said, “I’ve always wanted to go on a Bond-like adventure. Underwater would be awesome. If I could, I’d go explore the Titanic.”

Unfortunately for consumers the price for a sub is $1.5 million. However, DeepFlight does not currently expect you to buy one. The Dragon is just one of many subs like it on the market.

The watercraft may sound pricey but when you compare it to others on the market, you get what you pay for.

Junior Anne Williams said, “It would be super cool to have one of these but you would have to be filthy rich. For it to be worth it, you need to live on a coastal city and be loaded.”

This is a view of what it could be like in the sub. Sea creatures will surround you at every angle. This could be an everyday normal occurrence for owners of the sub.
