For once it's more than just numbers and a drawing on paper.

Sounds like a very well engineered craft and pretty cheap at the $3+ million mark.

That is covered in the videos in tfa. They completely submerge just below the surface of the water and not to depth, but imo, that satisfies "proof of concept" for this craft.

Also $3M variable is for battery selection. Me thinks the actual price. Baseline. Will not be for the feint of heart.

Yup, you're right. Totally failed the reading comprehension of that part.

So kindly ignore the "it's cheap!" part of my original comment.

Wasn't trying to be pedantic. Just noticed the net price is likely to be a a metric farkton.
/agreed on the the neat part,

Oh, I didn't read your comment as being pedantic. Sorry if I gave that impression.

I'm in the same situation of not being able to afford the batteries, much less the rest of it. I need richer friends.
