Jun Kamei invents the world’s first “gills” suitable for human use

Jun Kamei invents the world’s first “gills” suitable for human use

What inspired inventor and designer Jun Kamei to invent the world’s first equipment that visually resembles gills is a vision of a world that is underwater. These gills which have been named Amphibio are a piece of equipment that has been designed using a 3D printed. It contains two parts: the “gills” part which is a translucent fixture which goes over the face and a vest which performs the function of drawing in oxygen from the surrounding water. Both the fixtures are made of superhydrophobic material which is extremely water repellent and protects the body.

"The difficulty is our large oxygen consumption. We humans consume too much. Although you have oxygen dissolved in the water, the rate it needs to be drawn through the gill is huge, and this makes the gill wide in surface area," said designer Jun Kamei, adding that the material can be improved to allow for faster gas exchange in a statement about considerable improvements that can be done to the product.

Amphibio has also been tested in an aquarium and has provided results that are positive. It is yet to be seen whether it can function in a larger water body and whether it can be fit for human use.
