The Exolung promises 'unlimited' air supply underwater
Ave you ever dreamed of breathing underwater.
If yes, you may have had to choose between scuba diving, with a limited supply of compressed air that needs to be refilled.
Or snorkeling, where you only dive as deep as one breath can take you.
The Exolung hopes to bridge the gap between these two diving experiences, by promising an unlimited supply of air underwater, as long as you keep kicking your legs.
Here's how it works.
Divers where the exo along on their chest.
a tube of about five meters attaches the exo along to a floating safety buoy on the surface.
With each extension of the legs.
Air is pulled from the surface into the exo long as the divers legs bend Water pressure expands the diaphragm compressing the air and the XLR, which the diver can then inhale.
I stayed down there for two hours.
I have been thinking about something like Guinness Book of Records because it would be a very easiest thing to to get into that Book of Records at the moment when you are.
Have enough you can easily pass the device and it over to another person and then he can can use it so you can use the whole day other than the scuba tanks that you would have to refill a recharge.
No dive certification is required, but there are some Basics you need to learn regarding compressed air diving before hooking up to the X alone.
The makers of extra long tell me you'll be able to get all the info you need from an introductory diving course.
Other companies have tried to fill in the missing link between scuba and snorkeling before errbody and scuba offer a longer hose than the extra long.
However, each one limits dive time to less than an hour.
Having an unlimited air supply under water could be hugely useful to people's cleaning the underside of their boats.
Doing underwater repair and maintenance work, underwater videographers or just people who wanna spend long periods of time in the cool quiet embrace of the deep end of their pool.
This early in development, it's impossible to estimate exactly when the Exolung will be made widely available.
However, I did learn that the standard ExoLung with a 5 meter hose is expected to cost about 300 Euros or 330 US Dollars.
The makers of ExoLung also hinted there could be a future version with a three-meter hose for something like a $170 and a long hose pro model for approximately $550.
ExoLung, it's actually Based on a child's good dream of mine, so like many other kids, I was playing around with my snorkel and try to elongate the snorkel and we were frustrated that we couldn't stay underwater longer than ten seconds as kids.
And that's actually when it started.
And once I got the simple idea, just to use a Let's say like an upside down bucket with a with a plastic bag clamp to it, then it suddenly works right from the beginning.
X along is still a very new technology.
So far there are only two working prototypes.
And unfortunately, we weren't able to get our hands on one for this video, but hopefully we'll get to try one out for a proper review.
Sometime in the future.
Thanks for watching.
