Beat Michael Phelps

Michael Phelps has rewritten the record books with his incredible 8-gold medal performance in the Beijing Olympics. His fish-like 5 miles per hour speed is already considered inhuman.

But do you know that you could easily beat Phelps with the recently released Lunocet Monofin? A carefully crafted, high performance biomimetic (copying nature's designs) diving aid, and the result of seven years of R&D studying the swimming morphology of dolphins. A Monofin wearer can reasonably expect to achieve a speed of around 8 miles per hour underwater. With that speed, it surely makes Phelps look like he's lazy.

Lunocet even reckons that given enough power and practice, a wearer would be able to propel themselves right out of the water for a bit of aerial aquabatics.

The Lunocet Monofin is built from silicon encapsulated carbon fibre hydrofoils, which pivot around an aluminium and titanium footplate to provide equal power on down and upstrokes. It'll cost you somewhere between $1250 to $1800 depending on options and is available in a wide range of colors and designs.

Now, I'm ready for the next Olympics. Watch out Phelps!

might be awkward using it as your feet are always joined together.
