Underabove dual-lens camera: Above and below water simultaneously

Here at OSM we do like to bring you news on quirky gadgets and innovations and recently have posted articles on the Looxcie wearable Bluetooth camcorder and the Glass Globe doorknob. Now we have news of another great gadget, the Underabove dual-lens camera.

The Underabove is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept 2010 award and this is a truly inventive design as this dual-lens camera can show an image of two scenes usually not visible at the same time and that is the scene both above and below water. This is possible because the Underabove floats on the surface of a body of water where water and air exist co-exist, according to red-dot.sg.

The camera floats easily on the surface thanks to a polypropylene body which is lighter than sea water. The really clever part of this design is that the top half of the camera is filled with air to top the surface, while the bottom half of the device is filled with water to go below the surface. It also has an LCD screen so users can the image both above and below water at the same time.
