Nifty invention for sure.
Rebreathers still use compressed O2
. They just circulate a small amout of air, 'scrub out' CO2
, and replace the removed material with new O2
from the bottle. They work by maintaining the partial pressure of O2
for the required depth.
This article however... the O2
is coming out of the water itself.
Sadly, like what happened with re breathers, many people will die using these systems for various reasons before it becomes usable for standard rec. divers.
This is some impressive tech.... I'll be taking a copy of this to my scuba club this week
