Revolutionary Scuba Mask Creates Breathable Oxygen Underwater On Its Own

• themindunleashed
“Triton uses a new technology of artificial gill model. - It extracts oxygen under water through a filter in the form of fine threads with holes smaller than water molecules. - This is a technology developed by a Korean scientist that allows us to freely breathe under water for a long time. - Using a very small but powerful micro compressor, it compresses oxygen and stores the extracted oxygen in storage tank. - The micro compressor operates through micro battery. - The micro battery is a next-generation technology with a size 30 times smaller than current battery that can quickly charge 1,000 times faster.” – Yanko Design With the Triton Oxygen Respirator, it might be possible to breathe beneath the surface of the water as if you were a fish. Requiring no bulky tank to keep your lungs pumping properly, this invention of scuba diving equipment is much more ergonomic and organic in design. The regulator comprises a plastic mouthpiece that requires you to simply bite down. The

This gadget has no counterlung, no tanks, no regulator. Even if it had artificial gills to eliminate carbon dioxide and replenish oxygen then any attempt to dive deeper than 10 feet or so will be foiled by having no supply of inert gas available to fill up the lungs of the diver. Making up this balance by extracting inert gases from the water seems to be a bit too sci-fi for me. If it can do this miracle, great, I'll buy one. But you better don't hold your breath until it's in the stores...
