Designed by Jun Kamei, the Amphibio is a two-part 3D-printed accessory that functions as an amphibious garment to help humans survive when sea levels eventually submerge the earth. Functioning like a set of gills, this amphibious garment pulls oxygen from water and releases carbon dioxide back into the water. While the Amphibio prototype doesn't produce enough oxygen to support human survival, it has been successful in producing oxygen from water.

Kamei was inspired to design this item in response to rising sea levels and has called the amphibious garment an essential part of living in the future. Instead of focusing on the negative ideas of a flooded world, Kamei designed the Amphibio with an optimistic view of the future. HIs device would allow humanity to continue living in a flooded world and would ensure humans could explore the oceans around them.
