New Exosuit Lets Divers Go Up to 1,000 Feet Deep in the Ocean

Posted on the 18 September 2014 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


The two-meter-tall, 240-kilogram, aptly-named Exosuit has been specially designed to protect the diver from the heavy pressure in deep ocean and even work at 305 meters deep underwater for hours. It also features 1.6-horsepower foot-controlled thrusters and 18 rotary joints to let the diver swim around without any effort.

After a successful test run in July 2014, the EXOSUIT atmospheric diving system managed to open up endless possibilities for deep sea exploration. It is now on its way down to the 2,000-year-old Antikythera shipwreck, where the the world’s oldest computer was found, for further research.
