AMPHIBIO: A Gill Garment For Our Aquatic Future #WearableWednesday

Jun 0107

Biomimicry designer Jun Kamei has created the Amphibio in response to rising sea levels. The gill-like device claims to capture oxygen and disperse carbon dioxide from surrounding water.

Via Junkamei.com:

By 2100, a temperature rise of 3.2℃ is predicted to happen, causing a sea level rise affecting more that 30% of the global population and submerging the megacities situated in the coastal areas.

AMPHIBIO is a 3D printed amphibious garment which function as a gill. Designed for a future where humankind lives in very close proximity with water, it provides daily comfort to people who spend as much time in the water as on the land.

AMPHIBIO is made out of a special porous hydrophobic material which supports underwater breathing by replenishing oxygen from the surrounding water and dissipating carbon dioxide which accumulate in the system, inspired from the gill of water diving insects. The material can be shaped in complex form using 3D printing. Patent pending.
