Don’t worry: It’s not steampunk and it’s not Hollywood. In fact, this is a turn of the century diving suit, put together with the best and most imaginative technology of the time.

Obviously we’re not holding our breath to see it pop up on the runway—it looks a bit heavy, for starters—but if anyone was looking to spark an industrial revival, it wouldn’t be a bad place to start. Old machines will always hold a certain fascination, and it’s been a while since anyone properly tapped into it.
