The Amfibidiver is the creation of Belgian inventor Rene Baldewijns.
The Amfibidiver is able to drive on land, float and maneuver on the
water like a boat, and submerge and navigate like a submarine.
The two seat Amfibidiver was constructed by Rene and some interested
helpers using backyard engineering and ingenuity. The Amphibidiver
is made up from a variety of assorted parts, including; the fuel tank
of an airplane, two bicycles, the motors from five electric wheelchairs,
the hull of a sailing boat, seven drink containers, several kilos
of resin, a few garden seats and several miles of electrical cables.
A mixed lot to go with its mixed abilities.
The Amfibidiver is a 'wet' submarine, meaning the occupants must wear
scuba gear and sit in water whilst in the Amphibidiver.
The Amfibidiver is a one-of-a-kind fully working concept, currently
residing in the Land, Sea
and Air museum in the UK.
