Designer Gills - check out these artificial gills allowing a human to breathe underwater. Just like the gills of a fish, they extract oxygen directly from the water using advanced nano materials. The artificial gill is essentially a filter with pores too small to let water molecules pass, while oxygen is passed through. The gills are powered by a micro battery which pressurizes a small reservoir of breathable air that is constantly replenished as the gills pass through water.
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.
