    Google "Israeli inventor breathing apparatus" and you get what you want

    SB search "Israeli inventor breathing apparatus" and you get what you want

    That's what the sarcasm's about.

    Someone posts a thread on this device once every few months.

    Early on everyone debated why it is or is not plausible. But now, after the Xth thread saying 'hey, look at what I found on the internet, what to you think?', most experienced posters have only the energy for a few words of cynicism.

    I have modelled fluid-gas partitioning for a range of dissolved chemical speices over a spread of pressure-temp conditions, but I really can’t be bothered posting yet again why this won't work.

    I'd like 2 if they work as well as you say. How are they with trimix? Do split fins add anything to their functionality?

    I've heard of it every couple of years since the early 1970's.

    It consists of a membrane with a huge surface area that allows dissolved gasses through, but keeps out the water.

    It's apparenly "Not Ready for Prime Time" or it would be in production right now.

    Can't we apply the old rule of, "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say it at all."

    Ah, but that is nowhere near as much fun, and this board would loose its entertainment factor...

    Especially when it comes to poking holes into the umpteenth thread on a loony and the gonzo science project in his garage.

    They are 100% incompatible with split fins. However, they do recommend using a too large set of Jets.

    I believe the vest that was referenced in one of the above posts was the revolutionized 'lead' vest. It allowed more bottom time, as it gets you there faster.

    You do however have to wear a foil helmet while diving with this apparatus.
