350 million years after crawling from the sea, the Lungless suit will bring us back. Inspired by fish gills, the Lungless Aquatic Respiration Suit uses millions of cascading sheets of nano-membrane to filter oxygen from the water and deliver it to the diver’s mouth. Enjoy unlimited, tank-free exploration on the other 70% of the planet.

Exactly how advanced would nanotechnology have to be for this to be possible? It seems to me that this would work through nanomaterials and research is making great strides in that area recently, so would this be relatively possible in the next 5-10 years?

The suit is a possible vision of the future, when nano-technology might be advanced enough to let us breathe underwater.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
