I often have a love-hate relationship with technology, but this...Is just COOL...
There are two arms which come out from the side of the mask; it is these that act like gills, delivering oxygen. The arms have a scaly look that
conceal small holes where water is sucked in as the swimmer takes a breath. Inside there are chambers which separate the oxygen and then release the
liquid. The user bites down on the plastic mouthpiece to keep Triton in place. It is all powered by a micro battery that can charge up to 1,000 times
quicker than a normal battery.
I'm not sure how much depth this thing is good for, or what the oxygen ratio is. One might even need to learn new breathing techniques to use it, but
now that the prototype is public. I'd say improvements will be forthcoming. It's a far cry from the heavy tank divers use now.
