And I started diving 45 years to early...



Designer Jeabyun Yeon has created something great. Essentially it turns humans into fish.

“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. There are two arms that branch out to the sides of the scuba mask that have been developed to function like the efficient gills of a marine creature. The scaly texture conceals small holes in the material where water is sucked into Jeabyun Yeon’s Triton. Chambers inside separate the oxygen and release the liquid so that you can breath comfortably in the ocean.

Interesting concept. Reminded me of something I saw in one of the James Bond movies. Some critics feel it is only a concept and not a practical device, at least not on earth. One writer for Deep Sea News goes into detail disproving the practicality of the device using mathematical proof and Avogadro's law.

Me...I can't follow the math or the physics involved but I hope the device can work. Imagine the SEALS with a device like this.

One concern might be that if it quit working, how much oxygen (time) would you have to get to the surface.

I think using the same technology (if it exists) to replenish the oxygen in tank would make more sense, but power would be a big issue.

Of course, if this:

““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””

is true, I think these guys are wasting their time with scuba gear, they should be getting in on the cell phone action.
