The Diving Suit That Inspired The Big Daddy

Remember that mindless bucket of bolts known as the Big Daddy that you had a hard time killing while playing Bioshock 1 and 2?

Well, it turns out that the iconic look of the Big Daddy was inspired by an actual diving suit that dates back to 1882.

Created by brothers Alphonse and Theodore Carmagnolle, it weighed a whopping 838 pounds and had 20 ports on the helmet which give it a signature look that is way too cool to abandon on the ocean floor.

It's a museum quality death trap worthy of admiration, just don't drop some poor soul in the water wearing this getup or they'll likely never be seen again!
