IsraCast is reporting that an Israeli inventor has developed a revolutionary underwater breathing apparatus that allows breathing underwater without the assistance of scuba tanks. It is being reported that the new invention utilizes relatively small amounts of air that already exists in water to supply oxygen to both scuba divers and submarines.
The idea of breathing underwater without cumbersome dive cylanders has been a dream of science fiction writers for many years.
There are a number of limitations in the existing technology of scuba. These include the limited amount of time a diver can stay underwater, dependence on scuba cylendar refill stations.
The inventor, Alon Bodner, has already built and tested a prototype model and is on the way to building a full scale prototype.
