Alan Dove sez:

Following in the long tradition of crazy Frenchmen doing odd things underwater, the Scubster team is working on a prototype pedal-powered submarine.

    There is also russian pedal powered submarine called “Blue Space”. Initially it was developed by single man, but now I thinks some institute develops it.

    It’s interesting because it has dry cabine (does not require special suit) and uses Coanda effect. I think there may be some videos on youtube about it
