What Goes Down, Must Come Up

What Goes Down, Must Come Up | Scuba Gear & Gadgets | Scoop.it
Malibu Divers's insight:

Still clinging to that analogue SPG you purchased after seeing The Abyss in 1989, which is to say you've been subtracting rental price from the total you paid after every dive, and have somehow ended up in negative numbers, you might consider this.

A Snorkel Mask That Lets You Breath Like You're Not Underwater | Scuba Gear & Gadgets | Scoop.it
Snorkeling isn't the most difficult skill to master--especially compared to scuba diving--but only breathing through your mouth is a skill that doesn't come easy to everyone.

Malibu Divers's insight:

Really?  This cellphone underwater is too limited for time and depth for any scuba diver. When it stops working...do you really want to have to send it in?

Gift For The Person Who Has Everything? A Personal Submarine

Gift For The Person Who Has Everything? A Personal Submarine | Scuba Gear & Gadgets | Scoop.it
97% of the earth has never been visited by anyone. You can change all that with your own deep-sea submersible, surprisingly easy to operate on dives up to 5,500' feet - in pressurized, air conditioned comfort.

Pretty darn cool, it might be a few years before the price comes down from $3.4 million.

As cool as panorama shots and photo spheres are, they have a serious limitation: They need to stitch together multiple still pics, all taken at slightly different times.

MIT Biosuit is a non-bulky spacesuit that is more like a diving wetsuit for space and the basis for a soft exoskeleton for people with cerebral palsy

MIT Biosuit is a non-bulky spacesuit that is more like a diving wetsuit for space and the basis for a soft exoskeleton for people with cerebral palsy | Scuba Gear & Gadgets | Scoop.it

http://nextbigfuture.com/2013/12/mit-biosuit-is-non-bulky-spacesuit-that.html Biosuit is pressurized close to the skin--an advance made possible by tension lineson the suit (those are the Spiderman lines) that don't break when an astronaut bends their arms or knees. Active materials, like nickel-titanium shape-memory alloys, allow the nylon and spandex suit to be shrink-wrapped around the skin even tighter, getting Newman closer to her goal of designing a suit that has 30% of the atmosphere's pressure--the level necessary to keep someone alive in space.

Newman's BioSuit is also resilient. If the suit gets punctured, an astronaut can fix it with a type of space-grade Ace Bandage. That's not possible with today's suits. "With a gas-pressurized shell, it's game over with a puncture," Newman tells me after her TED talk. And while today's suits can only be fitted to people 5' 5" and taller, essentially eliminating short women and men from the astronaut program, the BioSuit can be built for smaller people as well.
