Doesn't sound terribly far fetched, though I do wonder what advantage it would have over current rebreather models. Other than portability.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

sounds great until you click the link in that link and find out why it can't work.
otherwise, how convenient would that be?!

Sounds too good to be true but I am not a scuba diver so I wouldn't know if it was feasible or not.

It´s just a concept now and I´m sure that the technology isn´t ready yet to realize the tool as presented.

a rebreather, having said that, I know of one that fits in a warm water bottle, but I have not seen any that fit in a mask.

While it does seem quite cool, I don't think it's really as useful as is being promoted.

1) It collects oxygen, not atmosphere. Breathing pure oxygen when submerged is quite dangerous. It would only be useful when used in conjunction with a larger tank of other gases to dilute the oxygen to atmospheric levels.

2) How long does the battery last? If it is being used to power a pump, even a micro-pump, I can't see it as having a very viable charge duration.

So, not only is it a fictional concept, it’s also not even an ORIGINAL fictional concept.
