Meesa thinks this looks like bullshit.
To be clear, the campaign claimed that this device was able to filter the oxygen out of seawater, allowing divers 45 minutes of shallow shipwreck exploration. Except if you critically think about that for one second it makes no f*****g sense. Oxygen makes up less than 1 percent of ocean water and a human lung moves about half a liter of air per breath. Meaning, somehow, this tiny little thing would have had to filter liters of water every second. You don't have to be a marine biologist to know that those numbers don't add up.
Of course, if you are a marine biologist like Alistair Dove, you could do the math for us. He explained how the Triton device would need to filter 90 liters of water per minute, using a battery more efficient than any that currently exist. Given that this thing doesn't have three 40-foot electrified garden hoses sticking out of it, he concluded that ya, this s**t was scientifically impossible.
"Wait, nevermind, it's got a micro-battery. Sorry, didn't see that there."
In April of 2016, Triton abruptly canceled the campaign amid backlash, refunded backers, and that was that. Ha, no! They relaunched the project, this time disclosing the fact that the device requires the use of refillable liquid oxygen containers, which you'll notice is the exact f*****g opposite thing.
