Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 16, 2008
InventHelp®, America's largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y., has designed a new type of scuba diving suit that would allow the wearer to detect objects that he or she cannot see. This invention is patented.
The "Ultimate Diving Suit" could help a diver locate people or items under the water that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye or conventional equipment. Ideal for use by search and rescue divers in search of drowning victims, the invention may help to save lives. The apparel would provide a convenient way for recreational divers to explore underwater caves and shipwrecks. The unit would be easy to operate and could improve a diver's efficiency and accuracy under the water.
The Ultimate Diving Suit would consist of a conventional diving suit design with multiple layers of neoprene material. The sensors would be located on the forehead, stomach, rump and bottom of the feet between the layers of neoprene. The sensors would be connected by an internal wiring harness. The sensors would utilize ultrasound and/or subsonic sound (acoustic). The suit would be used with a special mask that would incorporate night vision, acoustic imaging and thermal imaging technologies. The controls would be located on the back of one or both hands. They could also be located on the hip. The sensors and imaging techniques could be used independently or together and would relay information to a processing unit located on the buoyancy control device.
The processing unit would use the data to construct a multi-layered, three-dimensional image that would be displayed on a visual display mask. The suit also could monitor and display time, depth, water temperature, air supply and wearer's heart rate. A compass and GPS system could be provided to help wearer navigate. Traditional camera imaging could also be used. The suit may be used in conjunction with a set of pods or transducers that would be positioned around the dive area and/or on the bottom of the boat to triangulate the diver's position and give a three-dimensional view of the area. For the treasure seekers, dual or single metal detectors can be incorporated into this suit, also utilizing visual display as well as an audible alert.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
