Jeabyun Yeon, South Korea, has designed a device called Triton which, he claims, can extract oxygen from water, so people can breathe comfortably during diving. The designer was inspired by the famous “rebreather” used by James Bond.
To use Triton, swimmers would bite down on a plastic mouth piece, which draws oxygen.
The two arms (extension side) of the mask can work like gills, providing the necessary oxygen.
Water is drawn into it through the tiny orifices and inside in the reaction chamber the oxygen is separated from the water.
Using a small micro-compressor, but powerful, the system can compress oxygen which can be stored in such containers. The entire device is powered by a micro-battery 30 times lower than the ordinary one, but it can be loaded 1000 times faster.
The device is still in the concept stage, so there is still time to be available for purchase, but its inventor sees it as a product of the future, which could someday replace complicated diving equipment used today and many people will change the relationship water and water sports.
