Submarine Simulator

OK, here's one for a BIG home shop project. Red Bull sponsored a team to build a "Submarine Simulator"

Lots of imagination, but it sounds like they needed someone like Bill Lambing onboard to avoid such errors as: "you can even see the torpedo incoming on the LCD radar screen".
Radar??!!
Maybe they are advanced flying torpedoes...or the old SubRoc...yeah, that's the ticket!

I attend the "Maker Faire" in the New York. Had the opportunity of seeing the finish product first hand. Watching its operation. You can say that this was more aim towards the general public as a cross between a full size toy and wet-n-wild ride. It did draw a handful of on lookers. I had taken some Pictures. I am looking for them as of this posting. :|
