The world's first inflatable wetsuit, the Billabong V1 Wetsuit. It works just like an airplane life vest. You pull a cord, a CO2 cartridge instantly inflates an air bladder, and you are rocketed back to the surface. The V1 isn't commercially available now,  and there is no word yet on when or whether it ever will be. Good idea. Check out the video.
