SCORKL 10 Minute Mini Scuba Tank Diving

Diving with a scuba tank is great. You just have to be certified and carry a ton of gear with you. Snorkeling is great but you are pretty much limited to a few feet of diving. This Kickstarter project, SCORKL, is basically a mini scuba tank.

The SCORKL will allow up to 10 minutes of dive time and is small enough to fit in a backpack. The tank can be refilled with a manual hand pump or off of a larger scuba tank with the refill adapter. Of course, you will want to get the case, two SCORKL’s, the hand pump, refill adapter, etc… The coolest kit with two tanks will cos about $796.

Amazon continues with their quest to take over the world. Their latest product is a camera named the Amazon Echo Look ($200). After watching the Echo Look informational video, I realize that I am clearly not the target market. This isn’t a security camera but more of a wardrobe helper. Ok? Amazon Echo is still built-in so you can ask about the weather,...
