Autodesk Media Summit 2012 – Hawkes Ocean Technologies

I’m at the San Francisco airport waiting for my flight back home to India. I was here to attend the Autodesk Media Summit 2012 which ended today. I will be blogging about event and the new stuff in Autodesk products later. But here are some pictures I took at Hawkes Ocean Technologies, an Autodesk customer that we were taken to visit this morning. Hawkes Ocean Technologies develops positively buoyant winged submersibles, or what they prefer to call underwater flying machines.

This is a double seater trainer that is designed to dive down to 1000 feet. Click the images to enlarge.


This single seater is designed to dive down to 3000 feet.

Well, you can’t really call it a single “seater” as Ralph Grabowski found out.

Disclosure: Autodesk paid for my flights and hotel

    Yah, it was really uncomfortable. I could see myself panicking as the waters close over me…
