#2144: TwinFins

Frogmen often swim underwater using a relaxed body undulation technique that resembles the movement of a seal or dolphin.

Today’s invention is a modified set of swimfins designed to help this kind of stroke.

A pair of regular flippers have regions of velcro attached, as shown.

These can be slapped together, one atop the other, so that the fins stick temporarily together and act like a mermaid’s tail…providing greater potential thrust than the two separate fins.

Surprisingly, I can find nothing of this kind in any of the patent databases.

One Comment:

  1. The color also is a good indicator for left and right 🙂
    maybe the velcro should be more near the hole where the foot goes in as that allows more different configurations(rotated)
