It is well known that surfing involves risk. The danger for the surfer are not only big waves, but also frequently encountered in the coastal waters of the shark. So in Australia in recent months as a result of shark attacks killed five people. To protect fans to catch a wave was developed by the world’s first suit of invisibility.
A group of scientists from the University of Western Australia, in close cooperation with the specialists of the company Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) developed a wetsuit that will allow you to minimize the risk of shark attack. The first sample received the title Elude. The main purpose of the suit is a disguise of a swimmer or surfer in the sea.
When designing the costume, the researchers were guided by the peculiarities of the field of marine predators and created a sample of the wetsuit, making a person invisible to sharks. A second specimen under the name of Diverter received striped-white-blue color that repels sharks. Scientists have labored on this project for over two years and finally the costumes went on sale. Their estimated cost is a little less than 500$. According to the statement of Professor the University of Western Australia Sean Collina main goal of scientists was to increase the safety of the athlete, dressed in a wetsuit. Scientists have used natural fear of some animals over others. It is well known that some animals have color, deterring predators.
It is this principle that scientists are “assembled” in nature and used in their designs. A new invention was tested in water with the participation of tiger sharks off the North coast of Australia. The development of Australian scientists have been patented. This summer it is planned to test the new suits involving great white sharks off the coast of South Africa and South Australia.
