Scuba Breath

My perception of a pristine and peaceful scuba dive changed when I went for my first dive off the Great Barrier Reef. It looks so easy in the movies, but the breathing underwater with an oxygen mask is difficult. Don’t let those practice lessons in the swimming pool fool you! To make it easier for us, here is the Triton Oxygen Mask For Diving. It is a very convenient oxygen respirator concept that allows us to breathe under water for a long time by simply biting it. It also does not require the skill of breathing in and out while biting mouthpiece like conventional respirator.

  • Triton uses a new technology of artificial gill model.
  • It extracts oxygen under water through a filter in the form of fine threads with holes smaller than water molecules.
  • This is a technology developed by a Korean scientist that allows us to freely breathe under water for a long time.
  • Using a very small but powerful micro compressor, it compresses oxygen and stores the extracted oxygen in storage tank.
  • The micro compressor operates through micro battery.
  • The micro battery is a next-generation technology with a size 30 times smaller than current battery that can quickly charge 1,000 times faster.

Triton is a 2013 sadi product innovation studio project.

Designer: Jeabyun Yeon

    Then dont you think we have to go back to the drawing board? Heck people were laughing about people flying and breathing underwater. guess what happened.

  • mik says:


    if people continue to think it will never happen it will never happen

    Man people say we cant go underwater well Jacques Cousteau helped alot

  • Graham says:

    Flying was always going to be possible – birds have been demonstrating that it is possible.
    The amount of dissolved oxygen present in water is so low that to extract enough to keep a human alive, you’d need to process so much water that the device would also make a very fine propulsion unit.
    This is not, and does not actually claim to be a viable product; it is nothing more than a student’s design exercise. The student assumes some hypothetical technology and “designs” a pretty package and creates some pictures to market it.
    Personally, I figure he should get full marks, based on how many scientifically illiterates are queuing up to buy one or to tell us that the realists lack vision.
    Some things are difficult but might one day be possible, like flying, putting humans on Mars or curing cancers. This is not one of them.

    • Art says:

      Wrong! This is possible too. 150 years ago the idea of putting a man on the moon, tvs, iphones, drones, robots, etc. was unheard. You need vision my friend. Vision.

  • JerryH says:

    Birds fly, fish swim. Both are possible, but only to those with enough imagination to make it happen. The rest, the doubters, are only along for the ride when the innovators have finished their job.

  • mik says:

    exactly naysayers are there all the time

  • Marat says:

    Please tell me the price of it. I am very interested in this product and would like to become your distributor in Russia and CIS region.

    Thank you
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.


  • Graham says:

    Marat, this is a comments section, not an email service, and an imaginary product of a student’s mind, not a physical possibility, for reasons that have been explained many times above.

    Oh what the heck, sure, I can supply 1200 units per 20ft shipping container, ex Seoul, for US$32,643 per unit, payment in advance. If you’ve got $40 million lying about, I’ll happily pretend this thing can exist and spend your cash “developing” it for the market.

    I weep for humanity.

  • mik says:

    you weep for humanity for trying to create something like that? people said or one guy said people wont want color tv well guess who was WRONG

  • Graham says:

    No, I weep for humanity because this is no more than a student design (NOT engineering!) project, packaging clearly fictitious, non existent technology to demonstrate how a “design” student would package and market a new technology, yet so many people are unable to grasp that it does not exist, and that it simply cannot exist in the form described for a variety of reasons explained over and over again, not the least of which is that if the device actually processed enough seawater to extract sufficient oxygen for a human being, it would make a very fine jet propulsion unit and just about tear your head off.

    – The batteries don’t exist, though they conceivably might, one day.
    – The micro compressor doesn’t exist and the fluid dynamics principles preventing it from existing are well understood.
    – The filter, with holes smaller than water molecules, to let the oxygen through, is fundamentally flawed, since O2 molecules are LARGER than H2O molecules.
    – The storage tank doesn’t exist, but why would you try to make it so small anyway?
    – The designer has demonstrated his complete ignorance of diving physiology.
    – But most of all, it’s a student exercise, a fiction, written as if it were real, to demonstrate “design” (eg: product packaging and marketing skills), not engineering reality.

  • mik says:

    so why not instead of being the naysayer say why it wont work and offer something that can be used? Okay its flawed but maybe they can use the design on a bond film??

    plus teach them engineering skils

  • Gudrun says:

    If you want to get much from this post then you have to apply these methods to your won webpage.


    Is this underwater breathing technology been approved by a diving authority for use by divers? Please tell me the price of it & how to buy the triton scubs mask.


  • Graham says:

    It’s a “design” student’s “concept” of something that doesn’t actually exist. It does not exist. It cannot exist. It’s NOT POSSIBLE.

  • Mordj says:

    Hi Ron,

    You got it mate : We have hyddrogen here. So the device would need serious modification to extract 80% to 93% hydrogen and 20% to 7% O2 to have a viable gas composition to breath. This of course make things quite dangerous as you are carrying a battery.

    The other thing regarding design I see not fitting here is the shape : I would integrate this device as a stab and uses the stab as a filter just like with a CCR rebreather. That way you carry a bigger battery, you have a way bigger capacity of volume extraction and stronger compressor fitting the depth you need to attain (more depth = more compressing).

  • CommenterCock says:


    So he found a way to take oxygen from the water or thinks so. So now he has to take all your input and find a new way.

    It’s people like you who shut down the world of possibilities.

    This would be great fun in my indoor pool. I want one.

  • FeRKy Herce says:

    I WANT TO BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Shahin says:

    I have a question.doese this new technology have depth limitation?

  • Wilder says:

    Has anyone considered the thought that this thing might actually be splitting the water molecules rather than extracting the few O2 molecules floating around in the water.
    I don’t understand this type of nanotech so I don’t know if this is possible. Assuming it is though we would have the ‘reaction’ 2 H2O -> O2 + 2 H2.
    So you would have a 1:2 proportion of oxygen and hydrogen that you are breathing which is similar to the approximately 1:3 proportion of oxygen and nitrogen in the air.

    The nitrogen isn’t used in our body, its just a space filler and can be replaced with any gas that doesn’t affect us. In this case hydrogen. The proportions are also close enough that we won’t get oxygen poisoning.
    So do I think that this idea has some merit, although the critics are right about the battery and compressor problems. But they are relatively minor and we are close to the technology needed.

    My point is that you are seeing this in the wrong way. The maths works out, now we just need the tech.

  • Wilder says:

    Im 15 by the way. Seriously, how has no one even considered this yet?

    • paul curran says:

      This has been considered for a very long time. However the technology does not yet exist that enables such devices.

    • Coleman says:

      Sorry I forgot the link here it is!

    • Duke says:

      You’re a moron. If you have a little bit of brains do the calculations. Also note that fake articles/concepts that go viral make a lot of $$$ that’s the world we live in. Pure deception for money

    • Joe says:

      While I agree that the process is completely plausible, breaking water down into hydrogen and oxygen is not a chemical reaction. It is only a physical reaction. Changing water into hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), would be a chemical reaction.

    • NoOne says:

      Can’t tell if Coleman is trolling or actually believes the pseudoscience nonsense he/she is spouting.

    • Gold Fever says:

      First off, not a “chemical” reaction. If we recall from high school chemistry class, a chemical reaction occurs when two chemicals contact each other. With no outside influence, a reaction and transformation happens. For example, when you mix sodium hydroxide (NaOH) with hydrochloric acid (HCL) you get H2O and NaCL or simply put, salt water or brine. What you are describing is called electrolysis and that is an electrochemical reaction. A “micro battery” will never have enough amps to properly split the oxygen with the hydrogen not to mention any other adverse reaction that will occur and end up breathing in. You only get pure oxygen and pure hydrogen if you start with purified water. This device is designed to be used in areas that are not filled with purified water.

      If we read beyond this page, you will find the design calls for a filter rather than electrolysis. The filter works similar to the stage 4 field ceramic water filter I use. Water molecules are smaller than bacteria, viruses, and other nasty stuff. The holes in the porous ceramic material are large enough for water and not much anything else. The proposal for this new design works in a similar fashion. The filter media is a fabric wound so tight that the larger water, salt, or other molecules cannot pass but smaller oxygen and other gas molecules and atoms can pass. (ref: )

      So, there you go. Simple but may be expensive depending on the materials being used as the filter media. About time really. If it’s real, I’d consider looking into one myself since it would save me the issue of hauling tons of equipment in the back woods.

  • Hamza says:

    What is the price for that scuba breath?

    • Shawn says:

      You can only buy them with currency that is acquired by doing work for the alien colony that is on the dark side of the moon.

  • Shawn says:

    A ‘micro compressor’ and a ‘micro battery’. Haha! In today’s world, a micro battery would be in cell phones long before it was put into a diving mask. Do you know how much water would need to be passed through this fake device in order to provide enough oxygen for an adult human? It takes a very basic understanding of science to realize that this thing is entirely fake. I guess everyone is so wowed by the idea, they forgot to use common sense.

    • King says:

      You should chill for a second and just realize it’s a design. There were a lot of things that were designed and produced before something else that was actually needed. Wish I had an example for you, but I’m just here to provoke the thought

    • Coleman says:

      What are you talking about! The Triton takes in water, then it does a CHEMICAL reaction where if an electrical current is to be applied to water it divides the element into oxygen and hydrogen, it outputs the hydrogen and the carbon dioxide that is released in an exhale! This would work quite fine! This is recognized by many scientist and had been used for at least 3 quarters of a century! Here is the Wiki page dedicated to the Art of splitting water. Good day to you uninformed peasants! The Micro Battery and micro compressor are just brand names for A water splitter and a simple battery, this is nothing new, it is better than a smartphone battery though, its just the battery is too expensive to be in even a high end smart phone. Do you expect this to be in a reasonable price point, nope! These people have a monopoly on this market!

    • Im not that stupid says:

      Thank you! Amen

  • Eric says:

    Where do I buy it at?????

    • Eduardo says:

      Hi Erick. Did you get the information about where to buy the Triton Oxigen Mask ?
      If you have the information, could you please share it to me.
      Thanks in advance

  • IdahoVH says:

    Would anyone have an idea to use the concept of theTriton Oxygen Mask but for skiers trapped in an avalanche? Most die from asphyxiation than other injuries. I’ve seen the inflatable backpack (to create buoyancy (to float to the surface of the churning)) for avalanche survival, however, having a lightweight 20 min air-supply would greatly increase the chance of survival.

  • Anna says:

    Where exactly would I purchase one please?


  • Badrul says:

    I just want to see how far this project can be used for millenium people and if success i want to be the first have in my country…
    Good luck for all…

  • Don Smith says:

    Where can someone buy one

  • Brett F says:

    If anyone had done any research into this the first problem they would find it that this “concept” is meant to extract oxygen from water. Pure oxygen on the surface has a partial pressure of around 1.0, once we start breathing a higher partial pressure of oxygen (around 1.5+) it will have a toxic affect on the body -oxygen toxicity- it’s a thing, google it.

    For example, if we were to dive with this down to 10 metres, the partial pressure we would be consuming would be 2.0 = dead.

    Long story short we can’t use this device if it is ever made for diving any deeper than around 4 metres.

    • David L says:

      I’m assuming what’s what the “Oxygen Valve” is for, to avoid Oxygen Toxicity.

  • Stu Pitt says:

    I’ve just received the Triton mask, although the mouthpiece doesn’t connect really good, it is really fun under water!
    I shouldn’t use it above the surface, when my brother did it he breathed in a lot of water.

  • Lol says:

    lol the critics here sound like the people who made fun of the invention of the automobile.

  • Wayne says:

    Look at the add, it uses incorrect terminology.
    It’s not a mask, it’s a regulator, and divers don’t have Oxygen tanks, they use air tanks.
    As a concept it is good idea, in reality it’s a no go.

  • Oh young kim says:

    Where can someone buy one.

  • Rouen d'Arc says:

    This, as stated, could be possible with the tech coming out. However, pure oxygen becomes hyper toxic the more you compress it.

    Meaning even if this works, your permitted depth would be severely compromised. I would be interested in a working model myself as i intend to do cave diving. Really where my focus is.

    So,you need to add a side gas, possibly Argonne (think thats the next stage) because breathing 100% O² will kill you faster than ya think.

    Which gives rise to possible cancer treatment too… as pure O² will kill cancer cells even faster. So if you can find the balance between environment pressure, internal pressure, surface area, and concentration

  • Kevin says:

    Oh people, come on. This is fake.

  • Tristan says:

    I am 100% keen on this being mine how much and how is the shipping
