A French designer has come up with a way to 'fly' underwater - if you're prepared to look a little silly.
Guillaume Binard developed the Oceanwings suit as a way to realise the dream of flight-like movement in open water.
The design looks similar to wingsuits used by skydivers, but utilises different materials to allow divers to propel themselves forwards while gliding in the water.
A video of the suit shows free diver Pierre Frolla smoothly floating through the water, seemingly enjoying a greater range of effortless movement.
"This project shows the similarities between the air & water environments finding their main difference with density. Then a smooth and slow flight express how powerfull are the emotions & feelings that the underwater world generates on human being."
