Water Talkies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Water Talkies are devices which makes talking underwater possible.[1] They were invented by Richie Stachowski, Jr. in 1995 at age 11.[2]

The Water Talkie is a colorful, cone-shaped device that amplifies voices underwater for up to 15 feet (4.5 meters). What started as one product turned into a company producing water toys "made by a kid for kids" - a line of eight pool toys.[3]

Rich Stachowski won the 1999 Entrepreneur of the Year Award[which?] (the youngest ever) for this invention.[4]
