This see-through kayak will let you see those sharks about to eat you

Allow us to introduce the Molokini: a one-of-a-kind, transparent kayak from Seattle-based Clear Blue Hawaii that lets you look below the ocean's surface without getting water up your nose.

Pretty much a glass-bottom kayak made of plastic, the sleek two-seater features a sturdy aluminum frame attached to clear polycarbonate panels (the same kind used for bulletproof glass and the canopies of fighter jets). While designed predominately for calm ocean conditions, the Molokini can also handle choppy waves and won't capsize thanks to a hardy outrigger system.

But let's talk about the view again. During product testing in the crystal-clear waters of Oahu, Hawaii, kayakers could see a whopping 75ft beneath the surface. Pretty awesome, right?

If you fancy heading out in a Molokini to see what lurks beneath the waves (if you're in Cape Cod, just pray it's not one of these guys), you can buy one for the very specific price of $2,683.65.
