The Triton rebreather promised to grant swimmers fish-like abilities, allowing them to swim underwater without oxygen tanks. The device was purported to use so-called “artificial gills” that filtered oxygen from the surrounding water for swimmers to breathe.
After several requests for more evidence to back up Triton’s claims, the company now says the device uses oxygen cylinders that, when combined with the mask’s other elements, allows users to breathe underwater. These will need to be replenished after use and will be sold separately to customers through Triton’s website.
But the “new” claims are no-less fanciful than the old ones.
