Have you ever dreamed of flying through the ocean in a dolphin-shaped watercraft with a cockpit appointed like a fighter jet? It's okay. You're not alone. Bradley takes the Innespace Seabreacher for a swim around the lakes of Redding, CA. Now we only have one simple request: could we get some frickin' laser beams attached to their heads?

      Normally a vehicle impresses us with its top speed, attractive design or extreme efficiency, but its the zoomorphic qualities of this vessel that are most intriguing. The Seabreacher is mesmerizing to watch while underway -- it looks just like a dolphin when it surfaces!

      Adam, I hope you can help me. I really enjoyed the video - especially the production values and especially the small handheld steadycam used as seen at 23sec in the clip. Can you tell me what steadycam unit the production team are using? I'm in the market for one meself!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Hi Tim, The camera you're speaking about is a Canon 7D. The steady unit is a Glidecam model. The 7D is our main unit. We also use GoPros for hard-to-access angles (check out last week's "Z-Kart" for great examples of GoPro shots). 'Drift Innovation' also make good 'tight spot' cameras. Thanks for watching!

          DL - Thanks for the reply. I figured it was one of the Canon DSLRs but good to know which one. I'm about to get a 60D and have been searching (so far in vain) for a small tool to keep the cam steady while handheld. I'll look into Glidecam. We were also planning on getting a GoPro for our 2nd camera - great to know this is an established combination! Thanks again, and nice work on the clip. Being a Kiwi it was fun to hear the New Zealand accent in there.

      Poor tom Rowe, he either did NOT have the correct pattent or he would be rich off this guy , Its too bad that tom didnt go further and faster at making it work, Theses guys just too an unfinished Idea , and made it work , They didnt really steal it , They just jumped aboard the train before the lost it ,,,SORRY TOM ROWE , and grads to guys for using there brains , Any smart person would have done the same thing !!!

        WHEN U TAKE A DESIGN THAT WAS SOMEONE ELSES AN SAY ITS UR OWN ITS STEALIN IT! THERE R MANY DIFFERENT WEBSITES ABOUT HIM MAKING IT AN MANY NEWS CHANNELS THAT REPORTED ABOUT IT, I CANT BELIEVE NO ONE HAS CAUGHT ON

        I'm affraid that seabreacher have stoles nobody front of law. Even Tom Rowe is not the original concept inventor and any patent can be strong enough because the original concept is 70 years old! Tom was the first to have restarted the concept and yes he can be considered as the inventor in our heart but not front of the law. I build my own dolphin boat and the true I know this concept since 40 years because I’m European. The true is that rowe shows me that was possible to make it working and without him, I still will be waiting. You guys in America you will discover the inventor just now thanks to Steven Spielberg who remake Tintin adventures. Wait for the next tintin and red rackam treasure secret and you will see the first dolphin boat design concept. Have a look at Piratus Dolphin boat company website to know who is the inventor http://www.piratus.com/bionic_dolphin_boat_history.html www.piratus.com

      They don't do practical or ethical at Innespace! It's been around since 1988 an I own the patent these scumbags ripped off. Take the BioniOrca with a 420HP chevy. You'll never get the chance to own the Real Deal thanks to slimy bottom feeders at Innespace.

      Sweet Ride! I saw something like this in san Diego bay 20 years ago being tested by the navy seal team. It was in the shape of a killer whale. Their's was no where this fast though! This new seabreacher is a step up from a powerski, previously known as a surfjet made in the 1980's. Great design guys! Sign me up, I want one!
