Could someone make an instructible for a homebuilt version of DARPA's PowerSwim? Answered

Hey! Could one of you amazing builders/innovators/homebrew engineers out there take a crack at reverse engineering and ghetto-fying DARPA's PowerSwim project? there isn't much on it but you can get some good google images of it. Apparently it uses "shed vortex's" to propel swimmers up to 150% faster than normal swimmers and it looks incredibly simple.

Did you see this youtube video?  It gives you everything you need to know about how it works.

Nice place to use some of those RC airplane building skills, and some fiber glassing skills.
