  1. Awesome. Not only do they have the potential to save lives, but they look awesome too!

    I’m surprised that it took someone this long to come out with something like this. I’ve thought about something similar years ago after seeing a test where a seal shaped object and a square was tossed out into the ocean around some sharks and the shark ignored the square but attacked the seal shape. After seeing that I always wondered what would happen if you made a wetsuit that was done up with dazzleflage or something similar to break up the wearer’s outline, I guess it works. However, I do have to wonder how well it would work in the case of bottom attack sharks like great whites who would likely only see a silhouette since they don’t attack from eye level but from below their intended prey.
