This Ultra-Light Diving System Makes Scuba Accessible To Anyone

44 102



This lightweight scuba diving system lets you dive without the use of heavy tanks. The Nomad, which is developed by blU3, lets you explore shallow waters without the need to keep rising for air.

The device works by floating on the surface of the water. A compressor takes fresh air and delivers it to the diver, who is attached to a 40ft air hose. Nomad allows users to dive up to 35ft and charges via USB, providing over 60 minutes of usage from a single charge.

Experienced and novice divers can use the system, but it is advised to receive proper training before taking part in any diving activities.   Nomad is crowdfunding on Kickstarter and will cost around £719 with a ship date set for December 2018.

  2. hamshackleton says

    Interesting gadget, there are several other types on the market, but why oh why do these producers need to keep showing the female pelvic areas to persuade people to buy stuff?

  13. Michael Ward says

    This "device" is not SCUBA. I have major safety concerns about the system.
    Scuba stand for :
    Self
    Contained
    Underwater
    Breathing
    Apparatus
    This is not in any way self contained. This thing could be a dangerous mess.

  15. water fountain says

    good idea

  16. mistifeyed says

    What makes Scuba accessible to everyone is proper training! Accessibility has nothing to do with having the tank at the surface vs having it on your back. TRAINING is what makes it accessible.

  17. Ultimate Tensile says

    Scuba Diving? I don’t think so! Anyway, it’s kind of cool.

  22. Hussein Nour says

    High cost

  23. TheHumanNacho says

    So, a battery-and-compressor based Snuba?
    I wouldn't risk my life on something as unreliable as my mobile phone's battery.

  24. Muda Sugo says

  27. TY Z says

    You're basically trusting your life to a funky looking electric air pump floating on water surface. I wouldn't do that.

  28. Hudiono Alim says

    way overpriced

  29. Tony Lambo says

  35. Lazaro Bustos says

    Well that's how you sell anything now days, place a juicy ass within the first 2 seconds of your add and people are sure to notice you!

  36. Arc Kocsog says

    Interesting, but use metric next time, please.

  37. Rudy el Sierra says

    Yeah, it looks cool, but 1st you can't adjust your buoyancy Underwater, and 2nd, it looks unsafe dragging the apparatus with the tension on the hose, moreover, what if the battery is die and you're in the deepest stance, better free diving with snorkel on? And once again don't dive without any proper clothes on.

  38. SupLeon says

    Wait until you get tangled, bent, or a shark bites off that shitty wire.

  39. frilink says

    I seen philipinos sea gypsy use the same system using air compressor

  40. My idea in my imagination stealed.He stole my idea im 12 btw

  41. Ilsunny Lo says

    But it only works on shallow beaches. So its only for specific circumstances. Though you dont need to waste money on oxygen tanks is great.

  42. thomas mcginnis says

    That ass tho…

  43. Tex Rexy says

    What if the shark bite that florescent wire?
