Have you ever wanted to shoot video while you were out diving in the ocean? But using a waterproof video camera isn’t for you? Then you should consider Thanko‘s newest product, underwater video camera goggles [JP], which is waterproof to a depth of 5m.

The goggles feature a 2MP CMOS camera, 4MB internal memory, and a USB 2.0 port. It shoots video in 1280×960 resolution (AVI) and pictures in 2560×1920 (JPEG). The ring you can see on the picture enough is actually a “remote control” (which lets you turn the camera on/off when you’re underwater).

Thanko is selling the goggles on its Japanese website for $99 – ask specialized online stores like the Japan Trend Shop or Geek Stuff 4 U if you want to get a pair shipped to you.
