    has anyone heard about that Israeli Inventor thats tryng to invent a breathing apparatus that will allow breathing underwater without the assistance of compressed air tanks.the invention will use the relatively small amounts of air thats already in water to supply oxygen to scuba divers and submarines. if u've heard of it, do u know if it on shelves yet/or does it not even work

    Me too, mine converts it to nitrox though, they are going to release the trimix version in a couple of months. The price is pretty high though, roughly $40-$50.

    This is what I hate about this forum. The guy asks a simple question.. Have you heard of it, does it work.. A simple answer, Yes or No woulds suffice. But no, everyone tries to nail the guy, I'm assuming, because it doesn't sound feasible.. Not everyone is as knowledgeable about scuba as YOU.

    You are a couple of years from seeing this device on the shelf at your LDS. The link below gives a better description of the device and how it is inteneded to operate.

    I will probably wait for the second generation of the device before I switch over.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks for the link, Bill.
    They need to do something about the reserve air near the diver's stomach.. Like a bigger bottle!
