An Innovation by Elon Musk
It is said that necessity is the mother of invention. The need for devices that could help divers go deep inside the flooded caves to bring the team members back sparked the Tesla CEO Elon Musk‘s imagination. The entrepreneur came up with a kid-sized submarine that could be used to bring the members of Thai football team out of the cave one by one.
He also shared a small video on Twitter elaborating how this mini-submarine could be used.

Divers didn’t need Elon Musk’s submarine and managed to rescue the Thai Football Team without it. But the inflatable tube or submarine will indeed have some use for similar situations that might arise in future.
