Oobject’s Diving Helmet Collection

The latest collection on Oobject is a treat: retro and modern real-life diving helmets. As an amateur diver myself, I’m enjoying the frisson from two types of lust: wishing I could afford to buy some of the modern full-face masks kits available, like the DSL B-2 Deep Sea Helmet with Welding Lens (because you never know when you might need to weld a cage to catch a mermaid) and amazement that people used to go underwater in this beautiful iron monstrosities like the Carmagnolle suit. Turns out those Big Daddies in Bioshock were based on a real suit design after all!
