This Lego Submarine Is Fully Submersible, Fully Awesome

Here at GeekTech, we’re rather fond of all things Lego–something you may already have realized. And as cool as the average Lego replica may be, there’s something even cooler about a Lego submarine that can actually, you know, swim in water.
Yes, you read right. Lego builder “Brane” actually came up with a Lego submarine that is not only capable of navigating through a fish tank, but can also be remotely controlled using an Xbox controller. Granted, it can only go for underwater for twenty minutes or so at a time, but that should hardly be reason to nullify its awesomeness.
The Lego submarine was apparently devised as a final year engineering project. According to Dexter Industries, the developer used a pair of nxtBEE communication modules and a pair of 900mhx Xbee Pros (these were used to achieve real-time communications) to make the project a reality.
With stuff like this circulating the Internet, it makes a girl wonder: Have we sufficiently plumbed the depths of what Lego can do, or have we just begun getting our feet wet?
