Bionic Dolphin

We interrupt these long-winded entries with a quick overdone testosterone toy: The Bionic Dolphin, the Innespace pages have construction photos, and there are the obligatory usual press-release rewrites with the same mildly recropped picture: 1 2 3

When I saw this I immediatly thought of the early 90s show seaQuest DSV, where Captain Roy Schieder led his crew beneath the waves in a variety of high speed submersibles. It was an OK show, but as usual you wanted to strangle the kid actor. Of course, I understand the guy died last year, so now I feel guilty...

Re: seaQuest.. started out to be a good show, quickly became a 'Politically Correct' New World Order series and started to completely forget the laws of physics as well as anything resembling science fiction.

The 'Bionic Dophin' is very kewl, looks like it could star it's own TV series ala Knight Rider meets Flipper.

I always thought that the seaQuest must have used most of the output from its reactor to run the towel dryer. The original idea of future wars being between economic blocs, like NAFTA vs. EU vs. ANZAC was also interesting.

But even cooler is This earlier submersible shaped like a shark. Belgium is always a surprise.
