Could this be the scuba mask of the future? Yes, this gadget is just a mere prototype but if all goes well South Korean designer Jeabyun Yeon will have his portalable oxygen respirator taking divers to all new depths.
Seriously this is really cool! Imagine being able to finally breathe under water just like a fish. No more heavy oxygen tanks, lines or traditional scuba gear and scuba diving lessons, well lets just say they will never be the same.
Extracting oxygen from water through a filter in the form of fine threads with holes smaller than water molecules the Triton scuba mask will aid divers to breathe longer under water.
How Does It Work?
Brand new technology, that’s how! This portable oxygen mask will usea super charged micro compressor that compresses oxygen then stores that oxygen in the storage tank.
Here is where it gets even cooler with next-generation technology is in the micro battery with a size 30 times smaller and charges 1,000 times faster than your average battery.
