World's first 'turbo flipper' developed

The world's first 'turbo' flipper has been developed - and the Professor who invented it claims it can turn humans into amphibians who 'fly through water.'

The pioneering flipper combines a regular monofin with a small torpedo between the ankles which pushes the swimmer through the water like a 'sea animal.'

Inventor Professor Marek Swoboda explained that a sensor measures the force of the swimmer's kick and boosts them according to how much effort they apply - much like an e-bike does.

The 'Amphi' flipper will enable divers to spend less time coming up for air and more time exploring reefs.
