'Triton' Oxygen Mask Claims To Draw Air From Water While You Swim
A South Korean designer claims to have invented an oxygen mask which can draw air from water as you swim.
The idea is pretty remarkable - being able to breathe underwater indefinitely is an idea as old, or older, as the jetpack or flying car.
The new concept by Jeabyun Yeon is described as "a very convenient oxygen respirator concept that allows us to breathe under water for a long time by simply biting it".
