For extreme diving
  [vote for,

A device that you wear on your shoulders, (spring loaded and padded) that comes up above your head in a pointed cone. It allows you to dive into water from extreme heights without getting killed. With arms tucked along the body, dive head first into the drink. The device will break the surface tension allowing a safe entry into the water. The hollow construction then shoots you back to the surface.

You mean like a dog whistle?

       What about one for your belly, in case you belly-flop?

       Can it be also made of crushable material in case you dive into a rock?

       I would much rather land, as it were, on my feet.

       surely all you need is a pointed safety helmet - you can scoff folks, this will be mandatory before long.   

       you can use it at home afterwards for planting daffodil bulbs in the garden

       ...by diving off the roof.

       thats so funny - no, I was just thinking bending down and stabbing the earth - but your idea is better <g>

       Hmm, a large deflection area and moment at the point of impact. Better invent a cure for quadriplegia first.

       Wasn't that an album by The Who?

       Plus: chicks dig dudes with spring-loaded cones. When you weren't falling out of planes, you could joust.

       No, this sounds great at first and it would be fun I'm sure, but the last thing you want to do is pierce the water like this entails. You'll burst your eardrums.

       Or poke an eye out.

       Didn't Madonna bake this idea to prevent herself getting hurt when she fell forwards?
