Sense Under Water

Immersed Senses is the ultimate gadget must have for any underwater explorer. The helmet changes the way a diver sees, hears, and breathes in what normally is a not-so-friendly environment. Nearly made up of entirely glass and LED lights, the most interesting tidbits are the heads up displays giving you up-to-the-second GPS enabled maps, and the unique electrolysis reactor that extracts oxygen right from sea water. Water leaks are prevented by silicone that bonds the helmet to the skin. I want one!

    Huh? Sicicone lining that bonds the helmet to the skin? I am not an engineer or physics master but every feature described here works more for a fantasy movie than reality….

  • max says:

    Yeah, I look forward to you inventing underwater GPS while you are at it :)… Pretty though.

    Dreamy, but not doable first off the battey life we got now is crappy and can never run that amount of systems well enough, the oxygen rebreathers are NOT that small…even in the most hopefully editions. The mosture will fog like hell, and there is no way the silicon will make a seal that good, without constant purging of water coming in the first time you turn sideways. Micro pours means it will clog, without some sorta coating to prevent that..but its wishfully thinking…I’d say another 10 to 20 years in the wishfull thinking area..before we see something close to that..also even with solid state drives as used, you will not be able to have software that can catalog ALL the fish you encounter without having a moderate size drive…a little ahead of its time..IMHO..

  • Val says:

    How do you equalize the pressure? The designer has obviously never dived before.

  • Skribaki says:

    I’m with Val. If you use that thing underwater you can say goodbye to your eardrums.

    • Billy says:

      Dunno what your thinking…but I am a commercial diver and this concept IS a helmet. Meaning eyes, ears, mouth and nose are encased…MEANING no pressure will come into contact with ears. There is no need to equalize pressure when there is none…

      • Adam says:

        Lol not a very good diver then billy. Pressure is always a matter to deal with

        Lol not a very good diver then billy. Pressure is always a matter to deal with unless you are shallow diving

  • steve says:

    purely conceptual – i doubt the designers intentions were to make this a reality today. wishful designing. pretty cool design.

  • marscha says:

    clear that it wouldnt work today. looks awesome! i want one!!!

  • frezzingaces says:

    you need tons of weights to get all that air down,

  • Lamah says:

    The designer is retarded, they have absolutely no clue what electrolysis involves. Electrolysis is the application of electricity to water to cause the H2O molecules to break apart into their components: hydrogen and oxygen (two H2 molecules and 1 O2 molecule for every two water molecules that are broken apart).

    The designer has this backwards, they seem to think that somehow by mixing hydrogen with water and adding electricity in somewhere, (and heck, throw in a centrifuge in there while you’re at it) you get oxygen out. You don’t store hydrogen, it’s a waste product from breaking apart the water molecules.

  • Revolver66 says:

    I wouldn’t say that the designer is retarded. Just not a physicist or chemist. On his core77 portfolio it is displayed as a conceptual “blue sky” project. Looking at the concept as is – it is pretty far off but conceptually very strong. No harm in dreaming and thinking of the future.

    Nice work.

    • Lamah says:

      Any idiot can design something that couldn’t possibly work. This design has no value to society.

  • Flo says:

    looks like one of the daft helmets.

  • Zenith says:

    Don’t think it’s a horrible idea in concept, although horribly flawed, it’s designs like this that use imagination that promote and encourage engineers to create and think of new ideas. Science fiction becomes our reality as we push for it. Only thing I’D freak out about?? Ok it broke… get me my pony bottle… ack!! must get… mask.. off firs….t….. glub…

    will it be ready and up for sale b4 2012 cuz it wud b cool to have that

  • MIMZY MILLZ says:

    ok u the designer are going to have to work with other scientist on this , scientist that u never thought u wud b workn with – ya,ll r gonna have to cum up with sum tpye of minicher artifitional gills. and u did come up with the idea of thir being gills – seemzs like whr gonna have to study our fish more huh! also the oled interface interacting gps positioning led mini screen should have sum sort of satillight uplink – thin on top of that is this uplink gonna b free and whos providing it and can we trust them – altho this concept sounds pricey and im lookn forward to it

  • Andrew says:

    Beautiful design for shallow dives or snorkeling. If you go deep you have to have a helium-oxygen mix and hydrogen does not equal helium. So you cannot really use it to go deep like the designer wishes. By all means he really should keep dreaming, I would love to use something like this, but it is still a long ways out.

  • Erik says:

    Pure oxygen is toxic to humans at depth. Breathing pure oxygen 30 ft deep for any significant amount of time would kill the diver.

  • Ferdie says:

    Bill, if you are a commercial diver then you are probably the dumbest one around.

  • Beat Engel says:

    Hi,

    If you are really a commercial diver, you might have NEVER used a diving helmet.

    OF COURSE there is a need of equalizing the ears!!!

  • surrounded by idiots says:

    Wrong. All designs and concepts have value because without them there is nothing to develop. Working prototypes do not just sprout out of thin air, it takes a concept and sometimes wild ideas for them to be developed.

    There are 2 kinds of people.
    The first kind are people who dream big crazy ideas that are later turned into real life but are mocked and called idiots for having those initial ideas.

    The second kind are people are idiots who never dream big and crazy ideas yet are amazed and happy to use the product of these ideas, but call others “idiots” for having these ideas in the first place.

    It appears you are the idiot.

  • Radu says:

    Billy is right dudes…. pressure is applied on the outer surface of the helmet ..not
    directly on the head… it means that the outer layer of the entire helmet must be a strong and resisting to pressure material.

  • Dreamer says:

    I like the way you think,
    there is another way to use this helmet that I think is being over looked i.e. military or even just every day life. of course he would need to make some changes but change is life.

    take the underwater aspect out of it and you have a cool knew computer interface system.
    and yes i’m a dreamer to. to bad we can’t make money doing this.

  • AverySays says:

    In English, please.

  • Giampix says:

    The pressure, Billy, is all around you and all your body and in your breast, then you will never be able to push air in your lung, when they are at an higher pressure than your mouth!!!
    Moreover, pure oxygen became toxic at more then 18 metres, you should know.
    Maybe usable for snorkeling, but in that case a normal, usual snorkel is enough, and cheaper!!
    You never dive, don’t you, Billy? πŸ™‚

  • Matthias says:

    What happens when you places a sealed jar in the water, that is right the pressure inside the jar stays the same(at least very close) as when it was sealed, physics people! If you have a sealed helmet, the pressure will not changed case it is sealed and rigid!
