Video: Here's some chillingly beautiful shots showing what it's like to cave dive the 'El Toh' cave in Yucatan, Mexico. It's a completely different world down there. When you're inside the cave with water all around you, it looks a lot like being in an underworld you're not supposed to see. Some parts are haunting and other areas look alien, but almost all of it is just so damn cool.

I'm not exactly sure I know what a teleportation tunnel actually is, but I'd imagine it would look a lot like this. This being swimming with a million silverside fish in the ocean. It's beautiful, like travelling through organic warp speed or being a part of a swarm from a sci-fi movie that's about to swallow you or something.

Some retailers believe that it's important to make their stores easy to find. They will even pay a premium for space in popular shopping centres or streets with lots of foot traffic. Sony is taking a different approach with its Xperia Aquatech Store, one that definitely does not value convenience and spits on the concept of foot traffic. For one thing, it's underwater. For another, you have to scuba to get there. On top of that, you have to be invited.

A Nevada family of scuba divers has prototyped an underwater fort - an anchored air pocket in a net - at the secret location at the bottom of a lake in the Sierras. And it's been there for three years!

There are two experiences in life that never fail to give me pause: riding in a plane, looking at the earth and the patterns of nature and civilisation; and strapping a tank of air and diving in the sea.

The tech we see above ground in New York City is undeniably cool, but underground, where the wild things are, things are not going so smoothly. A giant aquifer, completed in 1944, is leaking up to 36 million gallons of water a day. For New Yorkers, who on average use 150 gallons per day, that's unacceptable. Trouble is, fixing the leak involves some extreme diving, 14 tractor trailer trucks worth of gear, and a 24-foot room that divers will live in for a month, breathing helium.

If you simply can't go anywhere without listening to your iPod, H2O Audio's new iDive 300 system will ensure that the tunes keep coming even as your lifeless body sinks into Davy Jones' locker. Features include a polycarbonate casing that uses a locking cam knob to ensure a watertight seal up to a 90 metre depth, an integrated microprocessor for complete control of touch-screen and click wheel iPods and over ear speakers that can be attached to mask strap or tucked under a dive hood. The iDive retails for $US350 which is steep for a case, but at least H2O Audio has a reputation for making decent products.
