Save for the Cruise Sub series, the personal subs from U-boat Worx are mostly lonely, underwater affairs – unless the sub pilot is a friend. Imagine going ga-ga over odd-looking aquatic animals but no one to share right there and then. But with the new U-Boat Worx Nexus Series, you can share the join of …
DIY Perks, a DIY channel on YouTube that mostly DIY computer and computer-related peripherals like a suspended microphone and making a laptop out of a phone has gotten his hands wet to make a super cool remote control submarine.
