Personal submarine doubles as a personal mobile island paradise

The market for personal sea vehicles just got a little more interesting with the first sea craft the combines a raft-like structure with the undersea cool of a mini-submarine.

The EGO semi-submarine may look like a concept vehicle, but it's a very real sea craft designed by Korean company Raonhaje. Powered by 12 8-volt marine batteries and able to reach a speed of five knots, the vehicle is designed for short two-seater trips, but it's exciting to imagine a larger version in which a living pod stayed under water while the topside deck could be used for lounging and gardening. You can check out exactly how the EGO works in the video below.
