  • Lungless Aquatic Respiration Suits absorb oxygen from water, letting you enjoy unlimited time with the other 70% of Earth.

    Inspired by the use of gills in fish and the skin respiration of the endangered Bornean Lungless Frog, researchers at Lungless have successfully created a scuba suit capable of “breathing” underwater. In nature, only animals with small bodies, low metabolisms and living in fast-flowing cold water are able to survive without lungs. But thanks to new innovations in nanotechnology, aquatic respiration is possible in any water, regardless of temperature or flow.

    Here’s how it works: When gently treading through water, Lungless suits and flippers filter water absorbed through millions of cascading sheets of nano-thin rubber membrane. As this happens, dissolved oxygen will be absorbed and transported through thousands of vessels within and underneath the thin membrane. Next, oxygen is consolidated into sufficient amounts required for comfortable human breathing and delivered to the mouth -piece contained within the facemask. All resulting carbon dioxide exits through the top of the facemask. Pulse is displayed on arm and mask display, just dial in more oxygen as needed.

    Science aside, Lungless is simple, just put it on and Expand Your Environment.
  • This is a speculative product that does not yet exist. But what would the implications be if it did, and we were capable of breathing underwater?
