The Bubble Room: Nevada Family’s Underwater Fort

Here we have an underwater fort/air pocket, anchored to the bottom of a lake (exact location unknown, but somewhere in Reno, NV.) It’s made of vinyl and a net and is attached to an octagon of steel. It would be nice if they mentioned more, like how much time one or multiple people can spend in it before oxygen runs out, but that exact info probably won’t be available until they decide to make more than a prototype (which they have the patent for.)

Also, the idea itself has been around since at least the 1500s, with the first being made in 1535 (known as a Diving Bell).
