Virgin Oceanic ~ Hawkes Ocean Tech "Nymph"

Thanks to PopSci for spotting another DailyMail delivery, Clair Bates' piece on Richard Branson's latest endeavor, the Virgin Oceanic "Necker Nymph"...
"...designed and built by Graham Hawkes, chief of Hawkes Ocean Technologies and is the first of its kind. Marketing manager Karen Hawkes, said: "The Nymph is an entirely new class of vehicle for us -- think of a sleek convertible under water. It is different from our other submersibles because it was specifically designed to dive to scuba depths in tropical waters."
This is especially exciting to me since I first met Hawkes last year during Erika Wagner's MIT Ocean X-Prize exploration!
