The Triton Oxygen Respirator Extracts Air Underwater

With something like the Triton Oxygen Respirator, it might be possible to breathe beneath the surface of the water as if you were a fish. Requiring no bulky tank to keep your lungs pumping properly, this interesting concept for a piece of scuba diving equipment is ergonomic and organic in design.

The regulator comprises a plastic mouthpiece that requires you to simply bite down. Connected to this, there are two arms that branch out to the sides of the scuba mask, developed to function like the efficient gills of a marine creature. The scaly texture conceals small holes in the material where water is sucked into Jeabyun Yeon's Triton. The simplified idea is that inner chambers separate the hydrogen from the oxygen and release it, enabling you to inhale the collected gas comfortably within the ocean.
