Very cool, indeed. This will require energy to operate, though. The report doesn't say how much energy. Bulky air tanks may just be replaced by bulky rechargeable batteries. As batteries get smaller and smaller we might one day have essentially a diving mask that provides its own air for hours.

thats very cool but like blizno said earlier it must be battery powered and thats a liability, I don't think we will lose the air tank that quickly, it might be still used just in case of an emergency. Man being under water for longer hours is going to be wicked.

Just remember Natures Rule! Big fish Eat other fish. If you swim like a fish, you may be Some Things DINNER! Care for a swim?

Probably costs thousands of dollars, though.

maybe now, but not in the future once the technology becomes refined.

Well once all the minor problems and kinks have been ironed out, its affordable and has small batteries I`ll buy one. Should only be about a decade or two.
