Wow - the research to put that apparatus together looks quite interesting.

Moved to the Lounge.

Kevin Costner obviously wasted his time starring in "Waterworld".

Nifty invention for sure.

they've been talking about using sponges that will feed us air, allowing us to stay underwater for days, but that's cool they have a prototype done.

while i dont have the article for this, i read that scientist have created a liquid that has enough oxygen to support our bodies, meaning that you could breath in the liquid instead of air. the catch is however, you need a machine to pump the liquid out, while you're submerged

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
