The nerd inside me just jumped for joy.
Phil Nuytten's most recent diving suit titled "Exosuit" is an ultramodern design that facilitates deep sea divers to journey more than 1,000 feet underwater, while simultaneously maintaining surface level pressure. The suit’s arms and legs are made with high-tech joints which offer divers great agility and elegance of movement as opposed to all that clunk of submersibles.
Nyutten shatters our God complex pointing out “As humans, we like to think of ourselves as a species that's very tough and flexible. But that's absolute horse shit. We're one of the most fragile critters on Earth, designed at sea level in a warm environment. We can't go far from those design specifications without a lot of help."
This futuristic Exosuit has numerous oxygen systems that hold up to 50 hours of one atmosphere-type life support. With four 1.6 horsepower water-jet thrusters, the divers can use to push through the water similar to astronauts in zero gravity.
Researchers are excited to put this suit to good use, this July.
With the help of Exosuit, researchers will plunge deep into the Atlantic Ocean to collect distinctive, fluorescent proteins from organisms the depths of the Ocean. They will use these proteins for further advancement in the study of cancer detection, spinal cord injuries and the overall makeup of the human brain.
Exosuit will be used to study ‘bioluminescent’ organisms that can only be found deep within the Atlantic Ocean. Given their extreme depths, these beings were not easily attainable, previously.
"I'm a deluxe blacksmith" Nuytenn said, adding “I make suits of armor for the ocean."
Nuytenn’s supremely chic previous works include establishing several companies that specialized in atmospheric diving system (ADS) products throughout the 1960s and 1970s
Additionally, he released the Newtsuit with Nuytco Research in 1985, used by the military, NASA and the National Geographic Society.
