Shark Cages That Cannot Be Seen

By: Eddie Paul | February 9, 2012

Eddie Paul just received his annual call from Jeff Kurr (of "Air Jaws" for Discover's Shark Week) and asked him to build a few more of his transparent tubular Lexan shark cages. Eddie has built several "clear or invisible" shark cages that enable divers to safely film the Great Whites without the camera picking up the bars that most other cages are made out of. Jeff has the highest rated show on Shark Week and when Jeff's life is on the line he does not go to the second best or the third best, and when it absolutely positively has to be done on time and done right he calls Eddie Paul. Eddie has built mechanical legs to be bitten, turtles to be eaten, and surfboards as well as seals to be digested by Great Whites over the last 15 years for Jeff.
